Peonies Amongst Americas most beloved garden plants, Peonies were brought to this country by early European settlers, and traveled out west with the pioneers. Before refrigerated shipping, they were one of the few perennials to be mail-ordered, and no self-respecting garden was without them. The longest-lived perennial, they need nothing beyond well-drained soil and sun to bloom for many decades. We ship only healthy, freshly-dug, 3-5 eye divisions only in the fall— the prime time for planting.

Paeonia 'Bric A Brac' �New Wonderfully twisted, irregularly fringed petals of cream, streaked with green and rosy-red, adorn this midseason bloomer from master breeders William Krekler and Roy Klehm. Subtly fragrant, this is a single-flowered Peony, but the unusual hold of the petals makes it look as full and lively as a Parrot Tulip. 24 inches high and about 30 to 36 inches wide, it prefers afternoon shade and is hardy in zones 2-8. Bareroot. Z 2-8 | late spring/early summer | sun/part shade | H: 24", W: 30-36"

Paeonia 'Cheddar Surprise' �New Marvelously fragrant, these big semi-double blooms of icy white boast a frilly collar of golden petaloids and short stamens mixed with a tuft of curly white petals, creating a very full, rose-like appearance. Borne on very sturdy stems, they open from blushpink buds and are excellent for cutting. Disease-resistant foliage keeps this midseason bloomer attractive all season. Roy Klehm, 1980. Bareroot.
