    Product Description

    The flower form on this peony is extraordinary. It's called a double bombe-type. A bombe-type peony, named after the French dessert, features long guard petals encircling a tuft of staminodes in the center. Top Brass has that, but mingled into those staminodes are very long petioles, which make it look as if there's a second flower on each bloom. Peonies are known for the lavish look of their fluffy, petal-packed blooms, but this double bombe-type takes it to a whole new level. Top Brass blooms also have a scent like honey, and they make impressive perfumed bouquets. The plant itself is sturdy, with lasting foliage that provides a backdrop for other blooms even when peony season is done. Paeonia lactiflora 'Top Brass' 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.
