The scoop on Peony Dr. F.G. Brethour

Rarely found in today's peony offerings, Dr. F. G. Brethour is a must have for fans for full, fluffy white peonies. Bred in 1938 by Hans Sass, a prominent Nebraska peony hybridizer in the 1930s and 40s, this enduring beauty is still prized for both landscape and cut flower use. The bowl-shaped blooms are petal-packed, with a wonderful sweet scent and sturdy stems.

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 coveted cut flowers
  • Deer, rabbits and rodents tend to ignore peonies

Mid to late flowering Dr. F. G. Brethour produces lots of blooms, typically with 3 to 4 side buds per stem to extend the much-loved peony season. The blooms are pure white, with no red speckles or streaks, making them perfect for weddings.
