Paeony Double – Francoise Ortegat (1 to 3 plants)


1 Paeony per pack.


Another stunning example of an old variety, boosting its way back into popularity! A gem of a variety, being over 150 years old, and is as hardy as they come. This dark red/black variety, with its unique colour tone, and incredible scent, will give you weeks of delight!

As with all Paeonies, they are best left in the ground undisturbed.

Ideally grown in areas South of Taupo, but with care can be grown further North.

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.

The big fleshy roots are completely dormant in Winter and in early Spring emerges rapidly growing stems, bearing 1-3 flower buds – these then develop slowly into gigantic blooms, up to 18cm across. Paeonies are best left undisturbed in the ground – As they grown, they will take up an area of approx 1m2.

Happy Gardening!!
