Peonies

Peonies are a beautiful and classic element of the perennial garden. As a cut flower, they have no equal. Fragrant blooms, lush foliage, and a wide range of luminous colors make these easy to grow plants much loved favorites. Our Peony offerings include many award-winning introductions from the Klehm family.

Use Peonies individually or group them in massed plantings. Plant in rows to create an effective and enchanting low hedge. Include Peonies in mixed plantings with shrubs and other perennials. Their late spring to early summer blooms are irresistible, and their handsome foliage makes a superb backdrop for other flowers throughout the growing season.

For best results, give Peonies a sunny area and well-drained soil. Water as needed during dry periods, although they do have good drought tolerance when established. They are pest and disease resistant, and are not attractive to deer. Peonies are long term perennials, growing in the same spot for 50 or more years!

Peonies require between 500-1000 winter chilling hours (approx. 3 to 6 weeks), between 32-40 degrees F to flower successfully.

Recommended to be hardy in USDA Zones 2-8.

We ship healthy, freshly dug bare root, 2-year-old Peony plants with 3-5 eyes, field grown on our farm, shipped in the fall, September through November, at the correct planting time for your gardening zone.

Hybridizing credit is listed under variety name.

Hybrids

Hybrid peonies are the result of crossing or breeding two peony species together. This progeny has vivid, oriental poppy-like blossom colors of salmon, peach, coral, clear pink, fire-engine red and soft moonlight yellows. They bloom early in the season with shorter bush stature and lighter green vibrant foliage than regular garden peonies. Their planting and care are similar to growing any peony well. Hybrid peonies are excellent in the mixed perennial border or used in groups around patios, walkways and pools.

Professor A. P. Saunders Hybrids

A chemistry Professor at Hamilton College, Clinton, New York during the early part of the 20th century, Professor Saunders is today considered the "Father" of the modern hybrid peony. He carried out extensive, scientifically based breeding programs with both herbaceous and Tree Peonies with the assistance of friends at the New York Botanical Garden. His Tree Peony work centered on the intercrossing of two species, the yellow flowered P. lutea and the orange-red P. delavayi with existing classical Japanese Moutan varieties. The resultant progeny produced a range of flower colors from lemon and golden yellow to ivory and pearl shades frequently blended and suffused with purple and pink, plus a few strawberry-red cultivars. In all cases, the flowers are displayed above attractive cut-leaf foliage. Eventually his daughter, Silvia took over her father's nursery, and after several decades Professor Saunder's hybrids are still in great demand by gardeners worldwide.

Good for Cut Flowers

Enjoy fresh cut blooms right from the garden! Experiment and have fun: store-bought blooms need to withstand storage and shipping, but home gardeners can use almost any flower for bouquets.

Tips for cut flowers: Cut blooms in the cool of the day. Leave plenty of stems and foliage to nourish the plant for future growth, (cut no more than 1/3 of the plant's growth). Re-cut stems at an angle under water just before putting in a vase. Change water in the vase frequently. Pick both large and small bouquets - even a single flower adds a nice, fresh touch.
