Plant of the Week: Paeonia ‘Karl Rosenfield’

Peonies are a popular landscaping design idea because of their large, beautiful blooms. While peonies are available in many colors, ‘Karl Rosenfield’ is one of our favorites. Deep pink to red double flowers adorn this lovely perennial that blooms in May and June.

Light Needs: Full sun

Watering Needs: Drought tolerant

Average Size: 2′-3′ tall blooms

Why we love this plant: The impressive flower color in ‘Karl Rosenfield’ contrasts beautifully with the dark green foliage, making this a great choice for adding a pop of color to any design. When blooms are fully open, the bright yellow center adds even more interest. To top it off, Peonies are low maintenance and provide an abundance of cut flowers.
