Paeonia 'Raspberry Sundae' has been one of the most floriferous peonies in our trials, each clump producing over two dozen 30" flowering stems, starting in early May (NC). Each stem is topped with lovely bomb-type flowers composed of a flat layer of pink petals, topped with a dollop of fluffy white...resembling shaved ice cream. As the flowers age, the central white petals gradually turn pink from the top down...very nice! Although the stems are fairly sturdy, the flowers are quite heavy and, in the case of rain during the flowering period, some support is recommended. These are large, multi-eyed, flowering-sized deer-resistant plants.
