DescriptionPeonies that Show Off and Keep Showing Up!
Breck's® Showy Peonies are a one-time investment for a lifetime of beauty. In fact, no other plant gives so much with so little care. We've combined three of our most popular Lifetime Peony varieties to create this one-of-a-kind collection. Properly planted, your peonies will bloom faithfully every spring, even if entirely neglected!
The Perfect Late-Spring Perennial!
About the time your tulips have finished, big flower buds will appear and your peonies will begin to bloom. One soft petal after another slowly breaks away from the tight, round bud until each massive bloom is 5-7" across and spreading its heavenly fragrance. Peonies also make delightful cut flowers— each beautiful bloom becomes almost a bouquet in itself.
You'll love peonies for planting in those special spots where you want a dramatic floral show. They are excellent for open spaces among shrubs...at the edge of woodlands...as 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. Plant your peonies 2-3' apart in full sun or partial shade. They're not at all fussy about soil!
Each of our Showy Peony varieties are extremely hardy and grow and bloom with no special attention— even harsh winter weather is no problem. You and your family will enjoy a lifetime of delightful foliage and fragrant, late-spring to early-summer blooms. And since roots can be divided again and again, a single planting may even provide beauty for several generations.
It's all about the Roots!
The trick to enjoying the same peonies for a lifetime is to start by planting large, top-quality root divisions. But finding such quality divisions has become increasingly difficult. Top varieties are frequently unavailable, and quite often only small field divisions are offered for sale.
That's why Breck's® is especially pleased to be able to offer our Preferred Customers in America this particularly outstanding Showy Peony Collection. Our garden experts have arranged with leading peony specialists to obtain three of their finest peony masterpieces—all ideal for planting in American gardens.
Our Showy Peonies are the result of years of patient development. The big, healthy, 2-3 eye field divisions are easy to plant and require little care—a gardener's dream! Even if entirely neglected, your one-time garden investment will reward you with beautiful, fragrant blooms decade after decade.
