Paeonia Lactiflora or Garden Peonies

Garden Peonies are old favorites for late spring display, prized for their large, colorful and exceptionally fragrant blooms.They are also excellent for cut flowers.

Plants form an upright bush of dark green leaves, remaining attractive all season. This popular double selection features soft apple blossom-pink petals. Peonies seldom need to be divided or moved, but if necessary it should be carried out only in the Fall. Flowering is always best in a sunny location.

Plant the tubers very shallow with eye just above the ground, otherwise they will fail to bloom. Trim off old stems to the ground in late Fall, to help prevent disease problems.
