Peonies

Pre order now for delivery in April/May

This year we have over 70 varieties of Peonies & 7 varieties of Tree Peonies (Look for their own Tree Peony tab in Shop!)

  The ones listed below are sold as bare roots with 2 to 5 eyes. Choose varieties flowering in early, mid and late season to have blooms for up to 7 weeks. Many varieties make great long lasting cut flowers and many have a clean, fresh scent. Peonies prefer full sun or dappled light shade and are hardy from zone 2 (Itoh Peonies hardy from zone 3).
Most will take three to four years to get established fully (you might get a couple blooms the first Spring) but will then last for decades with very little care. Deer resistant.                                          
Check the tab on Flower Care for planting instructions.
