The scoop on Peony Minuet

The name "Minuet" gives the impression that somehow this is a small flowering or diminutive peony. Nothing could be further from the truth. Minuet's double pink blooms are often 7" across, decorating a bush that matures to 40" tall. Substantial, pleasingly scented and a strong grower. Minuet also has foliage that fills out all the way to the ground, so there are no bare ankles to cover.

Why Grow Peonies?

  • Peonies are often referred to as Queen of the Flowers because of their lush beauty and rich fragrance

  • 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

If pink peonies are an essential part of spring for you, Minuet belongs in your May/June landscape.
