Big flower

Coral Charm is a hybrid, semi-double flowered peony with large petals. The centre of the bloom is filled with green seeds that are surrounded by yellow stamens. The colour transforms from coral to cerise, orange and, finally, white. The thick stems can also be cut into longer lengths if desired. Coral Charm has no fragrance.


This peony variety was bred in 1964 by Samuel Wissing. This peony breeder is famous for his colour changing varieties. In 1986, Coral Charm was awarded the APS Gold Medal.


Coral Charm comes highly recommended to lovers of colour changing peonies. Coral Charm is at its best from mid-May to mid-June. Please note that this peony is just available for a short period.
