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!
