What kind of peony is the Red Charm?
The most well-known types of peonies are single-flowered and double-flowered peonies, but there are many other types. The Red Charm peony for example is a round peony. When the peony is still closed, only the outer petals are visible. When the Red Charm peony opens you will see that the outer large flower petals come all the way out and the inside of the peony is filled with narrow flower petals that form a ball on the outer flower petals.
The Red Charm can grow up to 22 cm once blooming! This combined with the volume in the rose itself makes for a full vase. It is therefore advisable to use a large vase. The peonies need space to open fully.
Take care of your red peony
Are your red peonies not opening? Feel the peony bud carefully, there might be a small layer of sugar around the bud. This is mainly to keep the peonies as fresh and closed as possible, so they can fully bloom in your home. What you can do about this is quite simple. Hold the peony upside down under a lukewarm tap, but make sure the water does not get into the peony itself. Water in your peony will shorten its vase life and that is exactly what we do not want. The care of peonies is the same as for other roses, cut diagonally, remove leaves and use flower food.
