officinalis plena ‘Rosea’
Herbaceous Hybrid

This is the pink form of the Officinalis family. The large blooms of bomb form have broad, rounded guards well differentiated from the globular center of irregular formed petals. The flowers open a uniform shade of deep carmine-rose and shade lighter in the sun. A desirable variety for early cut-flowers that blooms ten days before the earliest Chinensis Peony.

Note:  Often listed as ‘Rosea Plena’ or ‘Plena Rosea’.   Likely an ancient hybrid and is part of a wide array of officinalis plena variants.
