Many rows of petals give a full, frothy look to this huge flower of deep Bing Cherry red. This outstanding flower is accompanied by distinctive cutleaf foliage on a sturdy, well-formed plant.

BLACK PANTHER Freely produced fully double blooms of the darkest black red are displayed over finely cut foliage.

BLACK PANTHER The foliage of this tree peony is quite different in that the leaves are more finely cut, giving quite a lacey effect. The fully double blooms are of the darkest black red and are very freely produced. Makes a fine specimen. Double, dark red.

Large fragrant blooms, an intriguing shade of almost black-red. The foliage is fine and delicately incised. It resembles the talons of eagles. The glossy flowers are held above and out facing. Black Panther is hands down, my favorite in the black-red group. Sublime & Rare.
