Paeonia, Perfumed Pink Peony Pair

$ 55 $ 70
Nothing quite compares to the fragrance of a peony blossom. In his fascinating book, The Botany of Desire, which explored the evolutionary give and take between plants and humans, Michael Pollen captured the intoxicating Dionysian experience of inhaling a peony blossom as "momentarily to leave our rational selves behind to be transported as only a haunting fragrance can transport us. This is what is meant by ecstasy: the be taken out of ourselves."
We are often asked by customers to recommend a fragrant peony for their garden. These are two of our most fragrant herbaceous peonies - guaranteed to induce a state of blissful reverie!

This pair consists of 1 plant each of:

Raspberry Sundae

Mixed pink outer petals give way to interesting centers of narrow inner petals, interspersed with yellow and pinks. Gorgeous flowers contrast well with the dark jade green foliage

Angel Cheeks

An excellent choice for either cut flower growing or landscape use. Compact bomb shaped double flower form. One main bud per stem with 2-3 auxiliary buds. Stems are short and strong at 20-24″ tall.

Bloom time: These early to 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.
