The flowers tend to hang down which I consider a fault. ‘Black Panther’ is unique among Saunders peonies. Some collectors really like dark flowered peonies, and if you do, this one is for you! I prefer sunnier colors, perhaps because they are easier to photograph.
The top photo was taken by Denise Hix in my garden.
