Lifetime Peony Collection Description

Enjoy a Lifetime of Beauty by Planting These Magnificent Peonies This Fall

Beauty Without Care
That's the dream of every gardener. And that's why the versatile peony has long been a favourite worldwide. No plant provides so much beauty with so little care.
And, best of all, once planted, peonies give a lifetime of delightful foliage and massive late-spring to early-summer blooms. It is not at all unusual for quality peonies to bloom year after year for many decades. In some Asian temple gardens, there are peony hedges that have provided continuous beauty for over one hundred years.
The Chinese perfected the peony more than a thousand years ago, but in recent years it has been improved still further by the careful work of skilled hybridizers. Thus, today's fine Lifetime Peonies are even hardier and more beautiful than ever before. They are available in a wide range of appealing colours that are certain to brighten any garden, border or container.
The trick to enjoying the full beauty of peonies is to start by planting large, top-quality roots. But finding such quality roots has become increasingly difficult. Top varieties are frequently unavailable, and quite often only small root divisions are offered for sale.

Breck's® Enters Its Third Century in Business
Breck's own roots date back to the early 19th century, when horticulturalist Joseph Breck founded our company. In 2018, we celebrated our 200th anniversary of doing business with gardening enthusiasts like you who have supported us for so long. As we enter our third century, we'd like to say "thank you" to our preferred customers with this very special offer on a selection of four outstanding Lifetime Peony varieties that you can expect to flower and thrive for many generations.
These Lifetime Peonies are the result of years of patient development--the ultimate in floral beauty. The big, healthy, heavy 2-3 eye, #1 field divisions are easy to plant and require little care--a gardener's dream! They're extremely hardy, and grow and bloom decade after decade.
You don't even have to give them special attention, such as protection from harsh winter weather--they'll sleep contentedly even when winds are howling and thermometers drop! Then, as warmer weather approaches, their red shoots emerge from the ground to herald the arrival of spring.
Properly planted, Lifetime Peonies will bloom faithfully every spring, even if entirely neglected. About the time your tulips have finished, the big flower buds appear and your peonies begin to bloom. One soft petal after another slowly breaks away from the tight, round bud until each massive bloom is as large as 6" across and spreading its heavenly fragrance. Peonies also make delightful cut flowers--each beautiful, long-lasting bloom becomes almost a bouquet in itself.

Versatile for Planting
You'll love Lifetime Peonies for planting in those special spots where you've always wanted a dramatic floral show. Plant them 2-3' apart in full sun or partial shade. In fact, these Lifetime Peonies may be just the thing for one of those partially shady spots where you've never been able to get anything else to grow. They're not at all fussy about soil.
You'll find dozens of spots around your home where you can enjoy the beauty of peonies. They are excellent for planting in open spaces among the edge of a 2-3' backdrop for lower-growing flowers...along a foundation or fence...and what a delight to create a dramatic hedge all spring and summer along your walks and driveways.
