Peonies with magical effects

Peonies come in beautiful colours and even with a colour transformation. These peonies change colour in the vase. Be amazed by the magical effect!

Coral Charm

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.
