Our Black Tie Peony mixture is made up of 50% Duchesse de Nemours, and 50% Francoise Ortegat - both of these beauties are fantastic cut-flowers, and renown for their hardiness.

Both varieties are expected to flower at the same time, giving your garden masses of softly scented blooms.

 

Paeonies (Peonies) are the true garden Aristocrats - these incredible plants are always strong in demand. Their GIANT, luscious blooms, and lovely foliage make them a real head turner in any garden. Paeonies thrive in frosty, cold areas, and are incredibly drought tolerant during the Summer months - in fact, it's recommended not to water these during the Summer! Paeonies do best in places situated South of Taupo, however with care (for instance dumping ice on their roots during the growth period) can be grown in the North. 

Peonies: Pure Elegance!

Paeonies (Peonies) are surprisingly easy to grow given the correct growing conditions.

Being planted in the correct location and given a little attention, most Peonies will grow profusely in the same spot for many many years, and will become a focal point of your gardens.

They thrive in frosty cold areas, and require some cold to flower successfully. Ideally requiring at least 3 frosts a year. They are also incredibly drought tolerant through the summer.
