Peonies are a staple in the garden, exploding into bloom for a week or two, and then remaining for the rest of the season as a full bushy green accent. They are very long lived, and while they are easy to grow they do require a bit of patience, sometimes taking two or even three years to bloom, but then growing stronger and more prolific with every passing year.

Golden Frolic Peony has light pink petals with hot pink brushstrokes at the base. We love the large yellow center, with the pink-tipped stamen. The foliage of this plant is a unique gold-yellow when it is young, and as the plant matures it deepens into a green. The shorter stature of the Golden Frolic makes it a good choice to plant in front of other peonies in the garden.

The petals of Peony flowers are edible, and make a lovely garnish for sweets and drinks.
