If the Henry Sass Peony was named Henrietta (Paeonia lactiflora 'Henry Sass'), instead, we would describe this flower as a blushing bride. These magnificent white blooms are elegant and show-stopping. This peony variety produces wedding-worthy fragrant blooms late in spring and into summer.
If you say "yes" to the Henry Sass Peony, you're committing to year after year of amazing flowers that will light up your garden. This peony is long-lived, coming back reliably for up to fifty years! These large double-flower blooms are snow white or blush pink and offer two looks as their pristine petals open. The buds are silky smooth orbs that slowly drop one petal as a time, unveiling a ruffled delight! The unfurled blossoms look like petticoats or pom poms.
Florists just love these flowers. They hold their color and shape for a week after being cut. And they make a stunning impact when added to a bouquet or flower arrangement.
You'll love that this peony, like most, has strong, long stems that don't droop or struggle to keep its large blooms aloft. These long, stiff stems make these flowers head-and-shoulders above other cut flower options.
Not only are the Henry Sass Peony's flowers remarkable, but this perennial grows handsome glossy green foliage. These rich green leaves really make the blooms shine, but when it's not in bloom, the foliage still creates a handsome arrangement of long, thin leaves.
Light up your yard and neighborhood by planting your Henry Sass Peonies in your mixed border or perennial border. The Henry Sass Peony will add a pop of late-season white to your cottage garden. You'll love when these beautiful flowers fill the air with their sweet floral scent.
To help your Henry Sass Peony shine, plant it in a sun-soaked region of your yard. It performs its best in well-drained medium moisture soil. And even though it smells delicious, deer and rabbits don't bother it. But butterflies love its sweet scent and tasty nectar!

Bare root Peonies are shipped as nice 3-5 eye bare root divisions. Their woody roots are not uniform, it is normal for each root to look slightly different.
Plant with the eyes just below surface level with the woody roots spread out underneath. Once buried, water and mulch thoroughly.
