Alertie Peony Description

Wonderful in bouquets and arrangements
Cut-flower growers and garden pros alike are singing the praises of this relatively unknown peony. Alertie is a stunning early-flowering variety with a lovely, sweet fragrance and a delicate, yet altogether romantic, colouration. Lush, double 6" blooms of soft pink fade to white with a blush of pink—perfect at any stage for creating some of the best bouquets and arrangements of the season. Very floriferous and long lived, the compact plant makes a fine addition to borders and mixed beds. Be the first in your neighbourhood to present this luxuriant peony. Paeonia
