Sometimes described as "red" which is a misnomer for this flower, Big Ben blooms in a vibrant shade of deep rose, with flowers held aloft on stiff stems tinged with red. This 1943 introduction rarely needs staking, stands very tall at 36-46" and is wonderfully fragrant. Big Ben is also a peony that performs well in warmer climates.
Big Ben is a midseason bloomer, which for peonies typically means late May to early June. Tall, strong stemmed, fragrant, deep pink peonies that are good for cutting and landscape use are rare. Big Ben is all these.
