2015 Peony 'Keiko' (Adored) Best Performer - Week 4

I must say I am really impressed with Peony 'Keiko'™ 愛幕 (Adored) this year. This peony just wowed me with its performance! This is only the second year that this intersectional peony has bloomed in my garden. I did purchase a large potted Monrovia Itoh Peony 'Keiko'™ 愛幕 (Adored) (also known as Peony 'Pink Double Dandy') plant from a local nursery in the fall almost two years ago. So I'm sure that gave it a great head start, but besides that it has just really taken off once it was able to send out its roots. Last spring this plant had 9 blooms on it. This year the plant had over 35 blooms on it! Also this peony plant was blooming for two weeks straight, and Week 4 was definitely its prime, peak bloom season. Peony 'Keiko'™ 愛幕 (Adored) has numerous side buds that open after its main buds which keep the blooms coming. This intersectional peony also shrugged off our late frost this year, with no apparent bud damage. The blooms on this plant are just awesome, opening a bright pink and fading to a softer pink over time. So if you are looking for a great intersectional peony to add to your collection, Peony 'Keiko'™ 愛幕 (Adored) is definitely it!
