Paeonia lactiflora 'Festiva Maxima'

Peonies are a group of herbaceous perennials that are widely known for their massive blooms. Their flowers appear in May and last through early June. Most flowers are large- over 4" across and up to 12" across in some varieties. Flowers are usually double and frilly and bloom in shades of pink, red, orange and white.

Peonies have been bred and cultivated for hundreds of years. Because of this, they are extremely long-lived plants and can live and thrive for generations. There are peonies in existence that are over 100 years old. Peonies take a year or so to get established, and once they do, you can expect slight growth yearly with more prolific and larger blooms over time. They are a true garden investment.

Plant peonies in full sun in slightly alkaline, well draining soil. Do not divide or dig you peonies- once they are planted, they should remain whole in the same spot. Water heavily when planted.  Peonies need little maintenance and do not typically require fertilizer or amending soil.

'Festiva Maxima' features very large, double blooms that are mostly white, but have small red streaking near the center of the flower. Festiva maxima is fragrant and popular with pollinators. Festiva maxima has been in cultivation for over 150 years.
