Raspberry-pink blossoms with fluffy white centers atop sturdy 30-36" tall stems in early summer. Fragrant and romantic, they are amazing when grouped in borders or bouquets. #1 field-grown plants. Deer tend to avoid. Paeonia 'Gay Paree'

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.
