Peonies are a staple in the garden, exploding into bloom for a week or two, and then remaining for the rest of the season as a full bushy green accent. They are very long lived, and while they are easy to grow they do require a bit of patience, sometimes taking two or even three years to bloom, but then growing stronger and more prolific with every passing year.

The Claire de Lune Peony is sweet but outrageous, with an outsized huge yellow center atop a single white bloom. The foliage, which you get to enjoy all year, is a pretty dark green color. This flower makes a statement, and we're into it.

The petals of Peony flowers are edible, and make a lovely garnish for sweets and drinks.

Planting conditions: Ideally peonies would like to be protected from strong winds, and given a bit of afternoon shade.

Care: Regular water and good soil will encourage bigger and more numerous blooms. However, it is drought tolerant once established. If you have cold winters, mulch the roots in the Winter. This variety will do best with staking to support the large blooms.
