Wayside Gardens Armani Peony

One of the darkest, reddest peonies ever grown! Armani boasts satiny red blooms that are fully double, the intricately ruffled petals creating a tasteful, sophisticated look. The stylish blooms make incomparable cutflowers, and this long-li...ved, trouble-free plant is at home in most beds, borders, or foundation plantings. Easy and not picky about soil, just give Armani a sunny spot, keep the soil moist but well-drained, and enjoy decades of garden beauty! If you are new to the joy of Peonies, let us enumerate some of their merits! First, they are exceptionally carefree once established. One of the longest-lived perennials, a single plant can last for generations. Second, their phenol content makes them unappetizing to insects, rabbits, and even deer. Third, they offer 3 seasons of color: reddish spring foliage, bright late spring and early summer blooms; and bronze or purple fall tones. Fourth, they are equally suited for garden or vase, offering old-fashioned charm plus armloads of blooms. Very long-lived after cutting, the flowers can even be used as everlastings. Peonies are a nice garden bridge plant, looking something like a perennial and something like a shrub. Set in front of large shrubs or trees, they make a big splash of color without occupying a lot of space. Traditional companions to Peonies are spring-and summer-flowering bulbs, blue- and white-flowered perennials, flowering shrubs such as Azaleas, and ornamental grasses. Bareroot 3/5 Eye.

Just for Peony lovers comes this extraordinary collection of the most distinctive and beautiful white and pink shades. We selected... these premium varieties for their magnificent flowers and their complementary colors -- any or all of these flowers combine perfectly in the vase! This 5-pack of Bareroot Peonies is sure to provide you with a good mix of both pink and white blooms, forming the foundation for a lovely, long-lasting perennial garden! The merits of Peonies are virtually endless! First, they are exceptionally hardy--easy to grow and carefree once established. One of the longest-lived perennials, a single plant can last for generations, blooming as reliably in its 50th year as it did in its 3rd! Second, their phenol content makes them unappetizing to pests, including insects, rabbits, and even deer. Remarkably disease free as well, they literally need no attention once established. Third, they truly offer three seasons of color. The new spring foliage is reddish; the bright blooms span late spring and early summer; and the fall foliage is often tinged with bronze or purple tones. Fourth, they are equally suited for the landscape or the vase, offering old-fashioned cottage garden charm plus armloads of stunning blooms. Very long-lived in the vase, the flowers can even be upended and dried for use as everlastings (the singles are best for this). Mature plants have a pleasingly rounded, plump form, and the foliage stays fresh even in the dog days of August. Fifth--but you already know this--the blooms are out-of-this-world lovely in color, fragrance, and form. As showy as roses and vastly easier to grow and care for, they are the unsung heroes of the flowering garden. Peonies are a nice bridge plant in the garden, looking something like a perennial and something like a shrub. They have enough height to form a good backdrop to low-growing and petite annuals and perennials, yet are compact enough for a slender border or corner display. Planted in front of large shrubs or trees, they make a big splash of color without occupying a lot of space. Traditional companions to Peonies are spring- and summer-flowering bulbs (because Peonies lush foliage nicely hides the slumping stalks after the bulbs have bloomed), blue- and white-flowered perennials, larger flowering shrubs such as Azaleas and Rhododendrons, part-shade plants such as Epimedium and Helleborus, and ornamental grasses.
