Show stopping Peony ‘Gay Paree’ is a two-toned wonder. Bright hot pink outer petals cradle densely-packed fringed creamy-white petals in the center. Sweetly fragrant, they bloom on sturdy stems requiring no staking. This distinctive, open faced Japanese style flower is a refreshing addition to the late spring garden. (Paeonia lactiflora ‘Gay Paree’)

18-36" tall x 24-36" wide. In the grand gallery of late-spring blooming Peonies, ‘Gay Paree’ is a standout. Cerise-pink petals frame a puff of ivory strap-like petals for a cheery, unique look. Lightly fragrant, its open form has a simple elegance. The shiny, dark green leaves add an element of interest all season long and may even color up in the fall. Deer and rabbit resistant, butterflies love them! Plant them in compost enriched soil in a sunny or light shade location. If the sun is strong in your area, plant them where they’ll have some afternoon shade. Keep them moist during flowering season and water moderately thereafter. Cut flower stems back after flowering and cut back the foliage entirely after it has died back in the fall.
