DescriptionEnjoy the World's Most Beautiful Peonies Right in Your Own Garden!
Invest in a Lifetime of Extraordinary Beauty and Fragrance
The intoxicating fragrance and sublime beauty of the peony was perfected in the Orient thousands of years ago. Sought after for its massive blooms, sweet-smelling perfume, and undemanding nature, it's no wonder the peony continues to be one of the most universally beloved of all perennials!
Breck's® is delighted to offer this exceptional Distinctive Lifetime Peony Collection, including three of the most exquisite peonies we have found, for an outstanding value. Each variety included in our Distinctive collection has been specially selected for its enticing aroma, exceptional beauty and nearly indestructible performance. This is your opportunity to showcase these stunning blooms in your garden from late spring to early summer, beckoning masses of fluttering butterflies. Plus, peonies are widely heralded as one of the most long-lived perennials available, so you can be sure each and every one will be a welcome addition to your garden for many decades to come. When you order this Distinctive collection, you can be certain it will be a treasure that lasts a lifetime!
Peonies present a dramatic springtime show that is one of the loveliest of the season. When spring arrives, bright red peony shoots will emerge from the thawing ground, hinting at spectacular beauty to come. Purple divided leaves push through the soil, adding an eye-catching backdrop to other bright spring blooms such as daffodils and early tulips. As the peony foliage turns green and other spring flowers fade, the real treat begins. Large, rounded buds will slowly unfurl to reveal the treasure inside. Exquisite, immense blooms–irresistible to butterflies and ideal for bouquets–will bring your garden alive, drenching it in vibrant colour and an intoxicating fragrance. Foliage remains green until frost, holding its place in borders, beds and foundation plantings.
This collection includes one each of the following varieties:
Celebrity: We're big fans of these huge, double blooms, with their head-turning, rosy pink and white colouration. This strong, long-lived superstar will fill your garden with an unbeatable fragrance, or cut a few blooms to perfume your home. It is most prolific when planted in a sun-soaked spot. Grows 2-3' tall with a 2-3' spread.
Laura Dessert: This bicolour beauty boasts long-lasting, fully double flowers that look almost good enough to eat! Creamy white outer petals support a pompon of pale yellow stamens-turned-petals—resulting in magnificent fluffy blooms that pop against the attractive dark green foliage. Grows 3' tall with a 2-3' spread.
Black Beauty: This striking, nearly black variety is the darkest bush peony ever offered and a hard one to find! Fully double, deep burgundy blooms are highlighted by bright yellow stamens, creating a unique and dramatic look. Grows 3-4' tall, with a 2-3' spread.
