Peonies

Pre ordering will open June 1 with delivery/shipping in October

                   We offer almost 80 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.
