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 blooms are petal-packed, with a strong, sweet scent and sturdy stems.

Mid to late flowering Dr. F. G. Brethour produces lots of blooms, typically with 3 to 4 side buds per stem to extend the wonderful peony season.
