Imagine waking up to the sight and scent of these lovelies by your bedside table? Host a party with these dessert-tray-worthy flowers on the table!

Pecher Peonies are cold hardy and long-lived herbaceous perennials. So easy-care, you’ll wonder why you haven’t planted more of them around your landscape! Your local pollinators and neighbors won’t mind one bit!

Planting and Application:

Peonies are classic Cottage garden, perennial border and cutting garden plants! The big fluffy blossoms add grace and elegance anywhere they’re planted throughout the late spring and early summers. Sized great for containers in cold-protected locations, porch, patio and even balcony gardeners can still include these perfumed lovelies into their outdoor spaces!

Pecher mixed beautifully with other perennials and happily shades early emerging bulbs with their rich green foliage, while later on acting as a fantastic backdrop for later emerging summer perennials! Plant in rows and groupings along walkways or in front of foundation planting shrubs to hide bare stems.
