The scoop on Peony Do Tell

We love this peony for it's originality, ability to perform in such a wide range of climates and, of course, for it's sensational looks. Do Tell is a Japanese form peony, with a row of cupped pink petals framing wavy stamen in gold and hot pink. The flowers mature to almost white so the plant offers several colors at once. If the peony word had a punkish rock star, Do Tell would certainly be a contender.

Why Grow Peonies?

  • Peonies are often referred to as Queen of the Flowers because of their lush beauty and rich fragrance
  • Elegant Japanese form peonies, like this one, produce big, beautiful flowers but without the weight of the classic double peonies, making them less likely to bend and break with spring rains
  • 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

We offer a number of peonies that have been awarded the Gold Medal by the American Peony Society, the national organization that knows peonies best. This award is bestowed upon one cultivar annually, a variety that demonstrates dependable performance across a wide range of growing sites, good plant habit (stem strength, fullness and attractive foliage throughout the season) and, of course, flower beauty. Do Tell is an American Peony Society Gold Medal Winner.
