Description
Peonies—there is no plant so beautiful, yet so carefree and long-lived. They can literally last a lifetime in the garden, showing off their fluffy flowers to fortunate passersby. These fancy, fully double, 4-5" white blooms feature crimson dappling at the center and a light, sweet scent. Placed in cutting gardens or as a border planting, they bring an elegant touch of beauty to their surroundings, making them a highly sought-after addition to sunny landscapes. Attracts beneficial pollinators, too.

I waited several years for my peony to bloom. I planted it to deep. This year it finally bloomed and I love it. Beautiful & classic flower. I look forward to many more years.
