An award winning hybrid peony with semi double velvety blossoms of the deepest, most luxurious red surrounding golden yellow stamens. This is an early season peony flowering in May and June where it add a level of decadence to the early summer garden.
Shorter stems means Buckeye Belle isn't quite as versatile as a cut flower as some other peonies but looks incredible if flower heads are cut with only an inch of stem and floated in a shallow bowl of water.
