Although a new offereing in 2024, the semi double paeonia ‘Paula Fay’ was introduced in 1968. It is a rewarding summer bloomer that flowers in the months of May-June. It may be necessary to support the flower stems. Paeonia tubers can be planted in the spring. Dig a spacious planting hole, loosen the soil and fill the planting hole with good potting soil. Carefully place the tubers in the planting hole and cover with 3-5 cm. soil. The planting distance of the tubers is 30-60 cm. Water the tubers immediately after planting. Paeonia bloom most profusely in full sun. The hot pink flowers with an eye of golden stamens are real eye-catchers in the border and is are an excellent cut flower with a long vase life. The best time to cut paeonia is early in the day. Immediately place the stems in lukewarm water with cut flower food.
