Paeonia ‘Dr. Alexander Fleming’


Double Peony

USDA Zone: 3-9

Plant number: 1.902.130


Garden Peonies are old favourites for late spring display, prized for their large, colourful and fragrant blooms. Plants form an upright bush of dark green leaves, remaining attractive all season. This selection offers fully double, bomb-type flowers in bright pink on strong stems in early summer. Floriferous. The inner petals tend to curl inward adding to its visual appeal. Fragrant. Excellent for cutting. Peonies seldom need to be divided or moved, but if necessary it should be carried out only in the fall. Flowering is always best in a sunny location. Trim off old stems to the ground in late fall, to help prevent disease problems.
