Fernleaf Peony

Peonies are some of the most prized spring blooms. You'll love to see these vivid flowers each year for decades to come. However, the season itself is relatively short, so peonies are often used behind spring and summer perennial beds, letting the foliage create a nice green backdrop. Bring your peony out into the spotlight with extraordinary fernleaf foliage. It's compact enough to bring to the front, so you can see these interesting, heavily dissected leaves up close. Also, it's produce these gorgeous flowers early in the peony season, which is why it's often called the Mother's Day Peony. This is an unusual peony you won't find in the typical garden center assortment.

Other Notes:

We aim for your order to be in your hands at the ideal time to plant, every time. Our growers must anticipate their supply based on the season they expect. Our experts predict weather patterns as best they can to set suitable shipping windows for each growing zone. However, as any gardener knows, nature is not so predictable. The type of product you order, along with the weather in your area or ours, may affect the anticipated shipping schedule.

Based on the contents of your order, we always strive to ship the order complete and as early as possible. However, sometimes this may result in a delay of some items that are ready before others. Our customers have suggested that they would rather wait to receive their order as complete as possible.

Orders with large items may be shipped in more than one package. There is no extra charge if your order requires more than one package.
