Herbaceous Hybrid, Red, Single, Very Early, Award Winner, 70cm, 28"
Early Scout is the first red peony to bloom in our garden. It has attractive deep scarlet, single flowers with gold centres, held on sturdy stems. This well-behaved plant has a nicely rounded shape with finely-cut foliage that reflects its tenuifolia parentage. Good cutting flower too.
