Angel Cheeks

Angel Cheeks, a peony to remember

Angel Cheeks is an explosion of pink. Chances are you’ll never forget this peony once you have seen it blossom. In 2005 the prestigious American Peony Society awarded the gold medal to this lovely peony. It was judged on the size of its flower, the look of the bud and its vase life.

Huge pink ball

Angel Cheeks transforms from a medium-sized flower bud into a huge pink ball with a golden center. It has a wonderfully fresh scent.


The peony was bred in 1975 by Carl G. Klehm, one of the most renowned peony breeders in the world. He is known for beloved peonies such as Pillow Talk, Bowl of Cream and Dinner Plate.


This peony variety opens up explosively. The peony is ready to be cut when you can wipe away the green bracts with your thumb and the inside of the bud is showing colour. The flowers can quadruple in size, so give Angel Cheeks enough space in a vase or in a bouquet.
