EARLY SCOUT (Hybrid) One of the earliest of all peonies to bloom. A very dark red single. Cut leaf foliage which makes a very attractive plant even after the flowers have gone. Fine landscape variety. Blooms hold well when cut.

EARLY SCOUT (E)(Auten) A dwarf (21") crimson red single with pretty blooms about 3" in diameter; deep green fine cut foliage; a gem for the rock garden and one of the earliest hybrids to bloom

EARLY SCOUT Very similar to Early Bird, but with slightly coarser foliage and darker red flower. Red single, Early, 50cm

Blooming Period: Week 2

Fragrance: Faint

Side Buds: No

Comments: Early Scout has inherited the dissected foliage from its parent P. tenuifolia. Though not as fine as P. tenuifolia I prefer this foliage as it resists the heat of summer somewhat better. The flowers are small and in perfect proportion to the foliage. A low growing plant barely reaching 60 cm (24") it is a great peony for the rock garden or the front of the perennial border.
