Paeonia 'Coral Charm' (Wissing, 1964) 2020 photo - Common Name: (2-SD-PK) Hybrid Peony, Mature size: 36", Medium height, semi-double, antique rose shape (bowl), coral petals, golden center, USDA Hardiness Zone 3-8, Michigan Bloom Month 5c, In Garden Bed f4,03,2 for 5.7 YEARS (Wild ). Planted in 2014.

American Peony Society: F2, inbred Officinalis Otto Froebel (tetraploid). A huge bowl shaped flower with a brilliant penetrating coral color, which has a mild agreeable sheen. The color lightens to a pale cream as the golden center of stamen's is approached. It is semi-double. The guards and second row of petals are large and have no undesirable petal notches. The petals become narrower and become gradually erect toward the center of the flower. The flower has unusual substance and is a free bloomer. Borne on 36 in. rigid stems, with good foliage. It is late "June 1st here" for a hybrid, and has real vigor. It had three blooms the first time it bloomed in 1S62, seven blooms the second year in 1963, and ten blooms in 1984. It has the stamina to stay in refrigeration for ten days at least and still do well. Seedling # 640.

That's wonderful! Hybrids can rot easily and they've survived! Hurray!
