Popular for over 150 years & winner of the Garden Merit Award by the Horticultural Society, Duchesse de Nemours is a must have for your garden or peony border. This double petalled peony blooms in a creamy white shade in late spring with large cupped shaped petals filled with smaller fluffy petals in the center. Peonies need full sun & neutral soil but can tolerate light shade. This variety has beautiful dark green foliage and strong stems, making it an excellent cut flower that will have a week vase life when cut in full bud.
Peonies rarely bloom their first year, like most long-lived perennials it can take three years for them to bloom prolifically, but it's worth the wait!
When planting peonies, make sure the eyes (the point where new growth emerges) are no more than two inches deep. Peonies need plenty of sun- 6 or more hours a day to bloom. If they are planted in a shady site, they will not flower.
