The scoop on Peony Big Ben

Sometimes described as "red" which is a misnomer for this flower, Big Ben blooms in a vibrant shade of deep rose, with flowers held aloft on stiff stems tinged with red. This 1943 introduction rarely needs staking, stands very tall at 36-46" and is wonderfully fragrant. Big Ben is also a peony that performs well in warmer climates.

Why Grow Peonies?

  • Peonies are often referred to as Queen of the Flowers because of their lush beauty and rich fragrance
  • An individual peony plant can live more than 50 years - talk about a modest investment returning long term benefits!
  • Once settled in, peonies require very little care, they almost care for themselves
  • Peonies produce outstanding cut flowers
  • Deer, rabbits and rodents tend to ignore peonies

Big Ben is a midseason bloomer, which for peonies typically means late May to early June. Tall, strong stemmed, fragrant, deep pink peonies that are good for cutting and landscape use are rare. Big Ben is all these.
