The Do Tell Peony, Paeonia 'Duchesse de Nemours', is an early bloomer with large, creamy white double flowers that have soft yellow central petals, deepening to pale green. Big, 6 inch blossoms are showy and pleasantly fragrant, great for cutting, and it grows to 3 feet in height. All of our peonies are widely adaptable to most soils across the country. They bloom in mid to late spring and have very large, colorful blooms that stand out in the spring garden. Do Tell Peony can handle dry to moist sites, and do best in full sun but can handle some light shade. Often thought of as a plant used on the farm or out in the country, they bring a little bit of that country feeling to your garden. It is not uncommon to see peonies planted along the driveway or lane in a mass. Southerners should seek out our early bloomers and provide afternoon shade.
