Lifetime Peony Collection
Enjoy a Lifetime of Beauty by Planting These
Beautiful Peonies Around Your Home This Fall
Lifetime Peonies are a one-time investment for a lifetime of beauty. In fact, a single planting may provide beauty for several generations since roots can be divided again and again. Many families are enjoying the beauty of peonies they've grown from divisions of their parents' favourite plants... which in turn had been divided from Grandma's favourite peony bed...and possibly from successive divisions through several generations!
Beauty Without Care
That's the dream of every gardener. And
that's why the versatile peony has long
been a favourite throughout the world.
No plant provides so much beauty with so
And, best of all, once planted, peonies
give a lifetime of delightful foliage and massive
late-spring to early-summer blooms. It
is not at all unusual for quality peonies to
bloom year after year for many decades.
In some Asian temple gardens, there are
peony hedges which have provided continuous
beauty for over one hundred years.
The Chinese perfected the peony more
than a thousand years ago, but in recent
years it has been improved still further
by the careful work of skilled hybridizers.
Thus, today's fine Lifetime Peonies are
even hardier and more beautiful than ever
The trick to enjoying the full beauty of
peonies is to start by planting large, top-quality
roots. But finding such quality
roots has become increasingly difficult.
Top varieties are frequently unavailable,
and quite often only small root divisions
are offered for sale.
The Finest Peony Roots
That's why Breck's is especially pleased
to be able to offer our Preferred Customers
in America a selection of five particularly
outstanding Lifetime Peony varieties. Our
garden experts have arranged with leading
peony specialists to obtain their finest
peony masterpieces—all ideal for planting
in American gardens.
These Lifetime Peonies are the result of
years of patient development—the ultimate
in floral beauty. The big, healthy,
heavy 2-3 eye, #1 field divisions are easy to
plant and require little care—a gardener's
dream! They're extremely hardy and grow
and bloom decade after decade.
You don't even have to give them special
attention, such as protection from harsh
winter weather—they'll sleep contentedly
even when winds are howling and thermometers
drop! Then, as warmer weather
approaches, their red shoots emerge from
the ground to herald the arrival of spring.
Properly planted, Lifetime Peonies will
bloom faithfully every spring, even if
entirely neglected. About the time your
tulips have finished, the big flower buds
appear and your peonies begin to bloom.
One soft petal after another slowly breaks
away from the tight, round bud until each
massive bloom is as large as 6" across and
spreading its heavenly fragrance. Peonies
also make delightful cut flowers—each
beautiful, long-lasting bloom becomes
almost a bouquet in itself.
Versatile for Planting
You'll love Lifetime Peonies for planting
in those special spots where you've always
wanted a dramatic floral show. Plant them
2-3' apart in full sun or partial shade. In
fact, these Lifetime Peonies may be just
the thing for one of those partially shady
spots where you've never been able to get
anything else to grow. They're not at all
fussy about soil.
You'll find dozens of spots around your
home where you can enjoy the beauty of
peonies. They are excellent for planting in
open spaces among shrubs...at the edge of
woodlands...as a 2-3' backdrop for lower growing
flowers...along a foundation or
fence...and what a delight to create a dramatic
hedge all spring and summer along
your walks and driveways. This collection includes 1 each of the following varieties. Sarah Bernhardt Peony - Bright pink Felix Supreme Peony - Bright red Festiva Maxima Peony - Bright white Sorbet Peony - Bright pink and creamy white Pillow Talk Peony - Light pink more
