Paeonia lactiflora ‘Lady Orchid’

Double Peony

USDA Zone: 4-9

Plant number: 1.902.090

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 double selection features soft lavender-pink, fragrant flowers in late spring to mid-summer. 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 the fall, to help prevent disease problems.
