Experience the qualities that have kept peonies coveted by generation after generation of gardeners with our Classics for Cutting Collection. Each of these three tried-and-true varieties produce large, fragrant, double blooms that look just as much at home gathered in a vase as they do out in the garden bed. They all last for decades with very little maintenance. That, along with the fact that the foliage stays lush even after the blooms have faded, means they can be used to create lasting structure in the garden. Deer don't tend to eat peonies, but butterflies and other beneficial pollinators are drawn to the blooms. Includes: Felix Supreme, Pillow Talk and Festiva Maxima.
