This was my first Saunders peony, bought mostly for the color (and, at $35, the lowest priced woody peony being offered by Klehm’s in 1995). So it has a special meaning to me. In some years it has suffered significant winter die-back and never achieves a great height.
I also received what appears to be the same plant under the name ‘Apricot’ from another nursery.
