This fantastic performer has graceful double flowers that reach 5-6" across. Plant a Festiva Maxima Peony, and your loved ones will be reminded of sunny days at your house every time they catch a trace of peony perfume. That's how the Parfum de Bloom® series came about, celebrating the transformative power of good scents in a garden. The varieties in this series are reliably, powerfully and delightfully fragrant, urging you to slow down, sit back and breathe in the season. Paeonia 'Festiva Maxima'

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.
