The unusual pink and white, 5-7" double blooms of this hybrid are as delectable as an elegant dessert. Fragrant flowers provide breathtaking beauty in early summer, and handsome foliage turns red in fall. Bushy plants grow up to 3' tall and require no special care. Deer tend to avoid. Paeonia 'Sorbet'

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.
