Most peony plants mature to about 3 feet tall; lovely big statement plants but the size can limit their use in smaller gardens. Early Scout is unusual in that it grows to about 2 feet, and it makes a nicely rounded bush with dense cut-leaf foliage. The flower stems are strong and staking is rarely needed. And then there's the color - a delicious crimson offset by a boss of fluffy yellow stamen. Early Scout is indeed an early bloomer, usually the first of the season, making it a good choice for warm weather gardens where it flowers before the heats moves in.
Early Scout is a winner of the American Peony Society's Gold Medal award, given to a single variety annually for outstanding performance.
