Product Description

This variety is slightly compact at 2-3' tall, and makes a lush display of bright foliage in a garden border. Then the blooms appear. Overflowing with petals and dripping with perfume, these feel like a true luxury. There's a great thing you can do with peony blooms, especially if you're planning a get-together. Cut Mons. Jules Elie blooms before they've started really opening up, wrap them in newspaper and keep them in the refrigerator. Bring them out a day or two before you plan to have people over and they'll unfold beautifully for the perfect fragrant arrangement, right when you need them. Paeonia lactiflora 'Monsieur Jules Elie'

Peonies have few requirements: give them a sunny well-drained location, plant 2-4' apart, with the eyes (new buds at the crown) no more than 2" below soil level and apply fertilizer or compost in spring. They take a while to establish, often 3 years before the first bloom—but the wait is worth it. They are heirloom quality. Let them grow undisturbed and they will bring joy to you and your loved ones through the decades.
