Perfumed Peony Pair
This pair included one each of the following peonies:
A classic lactiflora cultivar which has been in the US for a century. This description from Peonies: The Manual of the American Peony Society, edited by James Boyd (1928): "Very fragrant. Medium size. Guard and center petals bright old-rose pink, with a collar of distinctly lighter narrow petals. Usually develops a crown as the flower ages. Extremely floriferous; with excellent foliage..."
One of the oldest cultivated herbaceous peonies! Full double form white flowers that deepen to a canary yellow and pale green at the center. Prolific plants provide many blossoms, very popular as a cut flower.
Bloom time: These mid season peonies bloom in our USDA zone 6a garden in the second week of June.
Zone hardiness: Proven in USDA zones 4-9.
Plant sizes: 4-5 'eyes' or buds with proportional roots. This size plant will most likely flower in its second spring after planting, though many did bloom the first year.
