Pink Peony Single Variety Market Style

Angel cheeks peony

Angel Cheeks is an explosion of pink. You will never forget this peony once you have seen it blossom. In 2005 the prestigious American Peony Society awarded the gold medal to this lovely peony variety. Angel Cheeks was judged the best peony of the year because of the size of its flower, the look of its buds and most importantly, its vase life. The flowers can quadruple in size, so give Angel Cheeks enough space in a vase or in a bouquet to unfold its full potential.

Command Performance Red Peony Single Variety Market Style

Command Performance peony

Command Performance is a hybrid peony variety that features full-petalled flowers and is among the largest peony varieties. It starts red but turns brighter during blooming. After two days of blooming, the Command Performance peony shifts its colour from red to dark orange to salmon. Eventually, it will turn from peach to cream to white. This incredible metamorphosis has earned Command Performance the nickname gobstopper. The plump buds transform into big, beautiful flowers that treat you to a spectacular transformation of colours—highly recommended!
