Top of the Class Top Brass Peony

  • Unique Bloom Form
  • Honey-Like Scent
  • Glossy, Deep Green Foliage
  • Deer and Rabbit Resistance

The Top Brass Peony (Paeonia 'Top Brass') has one of the most interesting blooms of all peonies. Outer ivory white petals surround a ball of bright yellow with tufts of smaller light pink petals pushing out of the top, creating a flower like no other.

Blooming in late Spring above the glossy, deep green foliage, the unique flowers of the Top Brass Peony emit a light honey-like scent, which attracts pollinators.

Try planting the Top Brass Peony in a short hedge or in small groups along a border near your outdoor living space, so you can truly appreciate their amazing color and fragrance. The rounded, lush green foliage reaches a height of 2 to 3 feet at maturity.

These peonies are widely adaptable and do well throughout the United States (growing zones 3 through 8), but prefer well-drained, rich soil, and full to partial sun exposure. As long-lived perennials, they'll outlast most others in your yard.

The Top Brass Peony maintains deer and rabbit resistance, and is relatively pest free. Ants on peony buds are very common, and completely harmless.

Peonies in general are super easy to grow and low maintenance. While you can basically plant it and forget it, it's best to watch the watering needs and apply mulch near the base, to maintain soil moisture.
