Product Description

Discover a unique and opulent look for a peony in Plainsman. These are bombe-style blooms. Named after the French dessert, these blooms feature longer "guard" petals, encircling especially showy centers. This Japanese variety's large petals turn from a soft pink to white, but the real feature is the gorgeous tuft of staminodes in the center—which remain tidy and beautiful even as the flower matures. While it's not a fragrant peony, it is a very floriferous one. Plenty of blooms to enhance a flower arrangement and charm in the yard. Like all peonies, Plainsman is loved by butterflies, but rarely of any interest to deer. Paeonia lactiflora 'Plainsman'

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. Healthy peonies take time to establish, often 3 years before they start blooming—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. Plus, even before they begin producing blooms, you can depend on a handsome foliage display from spring through fall.
