Rubra Plena is a glorious traditional peony blessed with the deepest crimson-red double blossoms that have little rosettes of frilly petals. It has beautifully scented, luxurious blooms in the traditional cottage peony way. This is a species known to Europeans since the middle ages. In the U.S. it is known as the 'Memorial Day Peony'; one of the essentials carried out west in covered wagons. An ever-popular peony, spotted quite frequently alongside old farm properties, it is very hardy, strong and compact. It is just as popular today as it ever has been. It is not suitable for areas where winter temperatures rarely fall below 40° F because the plants will produce plenty of foliage, but few blooms.
