Lemon Chiffon Peony (spring-planting)
Lemon Chiffon Peony is a great specimen plant. This is an early blooming variety. To extend blooming time of peonies in your garden, plant early, midseason and late-blooming peonies. This way your peonies will bloom for 6 weeks, one after the other.
Flowers of Lemon Chiffon peony are a special treat in bouquets. Cut them at the stage when the bud just slightly opens and is soft to touch; they can last for a week or longer in a vase. Avoid cutting more than a third of stems off your peony in one season, as when too many stems are removed, the plant weakens.
All peonies are deer and rabbit resistant and can thrive for 50 years or more.
Bloom time: early
