It is very close to the ground. I was a little disapointed because it was pink, not red. The flower is lovely with not much of a scent. I am happy over all with the plant and would recommend this flower to anyone. It will be interesting to see when it blooms next year. This was an unusual year and it was in full bloom before any of my tree peonies.
This is the first year for this plant and it bloomed with 5 flowers! This plant came from the USA and did very well.
