Peony - King's Day

Paeonia Lactiflora

Few flowers surpass the magical King’s Day, which seems to charm every viewer fortunate enough to behold this magnificent peony variety. That it is already strikingly beautiful in its bud stage, clothed in peach-colored attire, is incredible in itself. The surprise is that it only becomes more and more beautiful as it opens. Its color lightens and shimmers in the sun in a way that only King’s Day can achieve—a spectacle for both the eye and the flower-loving heart. A fantastic variety that works wonders in flower beds and gives that ‘wow’ feeling that’s hard to put into words.

King’s Day lasts unusually long in a vase, making it the ultimate cut peony. This is Florea’s gardener Johanna Damm’s absolute favorite peony and is a must-have in her garden. At her home, we see it growing in multiple places in the garden, both on its own and interwoven with other varieties in a sorbet-like color palette. We are especially taken aback by its grandeur when we see it in a large vase on the dining table and realize that the variety truly lives up to its name!

(A favorite among pollinators that deer leave alone.)
