Peony Big Ben

New! A fragrant 1943 Auten bomb-type, it has 6” fully double fuchsia-magenta blooms with large guard petals. It is good in warmer climates. Our beautiful, prized display and cut flower Herbaceous Peonies have been divided and nursery-grown in the Netherlands for two years prior to export. Each rootstock has varying amounts of roots, and three to five eyes for optimum flower production the first spring (some rootstocks may be trimmed of old wood to allow new root growth). Early. Bloom time in horticultural zone 5: May/June. Prepare the planting site by cultivating 2’ wide by 1.5’ deep holes, 3’ to 4’ apart. Fill each hole with 1’ of good loam. Plant each rootstock so that the crown is just 2” below the soil level with the eyes, or sprouts, pointing up. Do not plant them any deeper as it could inhibit flower production. If they are not planted to the proper depth, the plant may not flower. Carefully shovel loose soil around the rootstock. Do not apply any soil amendments to the Peony crown area after planting (absolutely no manure of any kind: it can cause crown rot). HZ: 4-8. Height: 36”. 3’ wide.

Peonies are The Art & Soul of Spring™.
