Blooms are held aloft on strong stems. If you want to make an unforgettable impression (boss, cool neighbor or sweetie) cut a trio of these flowers and share.

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

You'll find a number of peonies here that have been awarded the Gold Metal 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, excellent plant habit (stem strength, fullness and attractive foliage throughout the season) and, of course, flower beauty. Moonstone is an American Peony Society Gold Metal Winner. Note: this variety produces smaller than average roots and small eyes. This is normal for Moonstone.
