Creamy orange

Paeonia Garden Candy® Oompa Loompa

The creamiest orange, double flowers with the most consistent colors.

Oompa Loompa doompety-do, we have another ITOH for you. If you love to have orange flowers in your garden, this is the perfect plant! Creamy orange, double flowers are so beautiful, they look like porcelain flowers, or the faces of sweet Oompa Loompas. The deep olive green leaves make the perfect backdrop for the stunning summer display, and quite frankly remind the grass green hair of the Oompa Loompas in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. This stunning selection is deer and mildew-resistant, blooms consistently, and has a lovely maroon fall color, providing ample interest in any garden.

Please note: We don't sell plants. Asking your local retailer or googling the plant name is the easiest way to find someone selling our plants.
