Melissa is a stunning hybrid peony that features fully double, rounded flowers measuring 3-5 inches in size. The blooms start with a light yellow hue and fade to a creamy shade. Each flower has an average of 3 smooth, green carpels and pink stigmas, along with stamens that have no fertile pollen. While no seeds have been observed, the plant is known for its abundant blooms and spreading growth habit. The dark green, broad foliage of the Melissa peony serves as a striking backdrop to its gorgeous blooms. Keep in mind that some blooms may bend towards the ground during rain, but the plant remains an attractive and floriferous addition to any garden.
