The flowers are huge, up to 10" across, and the deeper coloring towards the core makes them even more dramatic. They produce a subtle perfume, which is nice for flower arranging. The plant is lush and green, a beautiful backdrop throughout the season. Like all Itohs, Cora Louise is a cross between herbaceous and tree peonies, with top marks in vigor and strength. Once mature, it'll produce up to 50 blooms in a season. Great in large containers, or left in a border where it will enhance your garden for decades to come. It's easy to grow and tends not to be bothered by deer. Paeonia x 'Cora Louise'
