Peony 'Buckeye Belle' is a popular herbaceous peony cultivar known for its striking deep red blooms. Here are some details about this variety:

  1. Flower Characteristics: 'Buckeye Belle' peony produces large, semi-double flowers with a rich and intense red color. The petals are densely packed and have a slightly ruffled appearance, adding to the overall beauty of the flower.

  2. Bloom Time: This variety typically blooms in late spring to early summer, depending on your location and local climate conditions.

  3. Fragrance: 'Buckeye Belle' peonies often have a pleasant and sweet fragrance that can add to the sensory appeal of your garden.

  4. Plant Height and Growth: The plants generally grow to a height of around 2 to 3 feet (60 to 90 cm) and have a similar spread. The sturdy stems and lush foliage provide a great backdrop for the vibrant blooms.

  5. Plant Type: It's an herbaceous peony, meaning it dies back to the ground in the winter and regrows from the base in the spring.

  6. Cultural Requirements: Like most peonies, 'Buckeye Belle' prefers well-draining soil with a neutral to slightly alkaline pH. It thrives in full sun to light shade conditions. Ensure proper air circulation to prevent disease issues.

  7. Landscape Use: 'Buckeye Belle' makes an excellent addition to garden borders, perennial beds, and mixed flower arrangements due to its attractive blooms and foliage.

  8. Hardiness: This cultivar is generally hardy in USDA zones 3 to 8, making it suitable for a wide range of climates.

  9. Care: Peonies are relatively low-maintenance plants. Provide them with adequate water during their growing season, but avoid overwatering. Mulching around the base of the plant can help retain moisture and suppress weeds.

  10. Dividing: Over time, peonies can become crowded, leading to reduced flowering. You may need to divide 'Buckeye Belle' plants every few years to maintain their vigor. The best time to do this is in the fall.

  11. Pests and Diseases: While peonies are generally hardy, they can occasionally face issues like botrytis (gray mold) or powdery mildew. Ensuring good air circulation and avoiding overhead watering can help prevent these problems.

Keep in mind that specific details can vary based on your local growing conditions and the care you provide to your peony plants. If you have more questions or need further advice on growing 'Buckeye Belle' peonies, feel free to ask.
