Colour changing peonies start with flower buds in one colour. All that changes as soon as the flowers start to open. One of the most striking colour changing varieties is Coral Charm. It changes colour from coral to white – via cerise, orange and cream. This fascinating peony was discovered in 1964 by breeder Samuel Wissing.
Coral Charm is the best-known peony with this magical effect, but our growers have many more colour changing peonies in the field. If you want to be surprised by the colour transformation, then don’t read any further!
