Ruby red that’s slow to fade
Delicious berry-jam scent
Dark-green foliage a flowerbed asset
Established plants live for decades
While other red-flowered peonies quickly lose their coloration, ‘Red Charm’ impresses with its long-lasting, rich, jewel-like color. The fragrance is fruity and intense, like berry jam—a real plus. Plentiful dark-green foliage makes a good backdrop and looks good in the garden after blooming is done. Extremely long-lived and easy to grow, too, so you depend on it year after year. A favorite for bouquets, on its own or in concert with other peonies.
Prospers in full sun to partial shade. Matures between 24-36 inches high and wide. Zones 4-7.
