The „Command Performance” peony is a stunning herbaceous perennial plant with large, double blooms in a vibrant pink color. Each flower has multiple layers of ruffled petals that give it a full, luxurious appearance and can measure up to 55 cm tall. The foliage of the „Command Performance” peony is also impressive, with deep green leaves that complement the vibrant blooms.
Origin Command Performance Peony
William Krekler developed the „Command Performance” peony in the United States in 1964. The name “Command Performance” was inspired by the high-performance standards demanded by the United States Army, which was headquartered near Krekler’s Missouri peony farm.
Krekler wanted to develop a new peony variety with large, vibrant blooms, sturdy stems, and a long flowering period. He accomplished this by crossing two distinct peony varieties, Karl Rosenfield and Red Charm.
Command Performance, the resulting peony, quickly became popular among gardeners and peony enthusiasts due to its showy flowers and hardiness. It is still widely grown in gardens and is one of the most popular peony varieties in the United States today.
Flower CareHere are some care recommendations for a peony bouquet: When you receive the peonies bouquet, carefully remove it from its packaging. Under running water, cut the flower stems diagonally at a 45-degree angle with clean and sharp scissors. This will prevent air bubbles from forming in the stems, which can obstruct water uptake. To prevent bacterial growth in the vase, remove any leaves or foliage that are below the water line. Choose a vase that is clean and large enough to hold the peonies. Fill it with clean, fresh water. If the bouquet includes flower food, mix it into the water according to the package directions. If you don't have flower food, you can add a pinch of sugar to the water to help keep the water clean and the flowers nourished. Change the water every two days and recut the stems at a 45-degree angle to assist the flowers in absorbing water. You can help ensure that your peonies bouquet stays fresh and beautiful for as long as possible by following these steps.
