Pink Pompadour is one of the most beautiful peonies with broad, fuchsia-pink outer petals surrounding a mass of narrow, notched petals in two distinctive tiers.
Peonies are one of the best-known perennials around. The ‘Pink Pompadour’ featured here has a very unique form and beautiful coloring. The foliage consists of dark green with broad petals that are composed of dark pink with light pink petals. The ‘Pink Pompadour’ Peony grows well in full sun to partial shade.
Peonies are tough, undemanding perennials that can bloom happily for a century or more with little care. Choose a sunny to lightly shaded spot to plant with good air circulation and plenty of room for them to grow. Because they like ample water, they do best in somewhat heavier clay-type soils and away from the roots of trees and shrubs.
When planting, water deeply and maintain even soil moisture until the ground freezes to help the plant develop as many feeder roots as possible its first fall. To protect the delicate roots the first winter, apply mulch. After the ground freezes, mound the newly planted area with 2-4 inches of soil or 5-8 inches of a fluffy, non-matting mulch such as straw, cornstalks, peat moss, or evergreen boughs – but not leaves.
Tip: Potted dormant perennials can be kept in a well-lit cool/cold area (i.e. garage, shed, even in a protected area outdoors) until ready for spring planting. Do not allow them to completely dry out.
