Our experts put three collections together—9 peony plants in total—to explore unique benefits of the peony. Each set includes three cultivars that do something particularly well; the first collection focuses on award–winning performance, second on unusual flower forms and third on the most extravagant perfumes. For the true connoisseur, The Works combines all three collections for the best value. It features nearly every flower type the peony has to offer, and promises you a complete, one–of–a–kind peony garden. These peonies are disease and deer resistant, mildly to very fragrant, and produce some of the best cut flowers available. Their blooms appear in late spring, with each individual variety blooming for an average of 8–10 days. The lush foliage stays attractive throughout the season. Like most long–lived perennials, it can take a few years for them to produce masses of blooms, but with a little patience you'll be rewarded by a lifetime of flowers.
