Peony 'Sorbet' One of the most beautiful color combinations in the Peony family, 'Sorbet' brings soft, luscious tones to the late spring garden. These blooms are 5 inches wide and tall, with 3 distinct layers of pastel color. Ideal for cutting (they are very long-lasting), they arise heavily on compact plants. 'Sorbet' blooms in midseason, late spring to early summer in most climates, on plants just 3 feet tall and 2 1/2 feet wide.
‘Sorbet’ peony Flowers ~ I LOVED watching the ants crawl all over the peony buds when I was a child growing up in Kansas. I was told this was a vital part of the flowers' blooming process, so I choose to believe this. I wonder if I could grow lovely peonies in Southern California...
Sorbet Peony The unusual pink and white 5-7" double blooms of this hybrid are as delectable as an elegant dessert. The fragrant flowers provide breathtaking beauty in early summer, and the handsome foliage turns red in autumn. These bushy plants grow up to 4' tall and require little care. Suitable for any climate and soil type.
