Duchesse de Nemours Peony
Popular Peony with Exquisite White Blooms and Fragrance
One of the oldest, and most popular, of the Peonies is Duchesse De Nemours. As elegant as the name implies, this tried-and-true variety offers up exquisite, double blossoms of snowy white enchantment early in mid-season. Each ravishing bloom features delicately, in-curving petals and a subtle undertone of yellow/green that seems to shine forth from its center. The dazzling nature of the blossoms is even further enhanced by the sublime fragrance that sweetly scents the garden, a sure draw to pollinators…and anyone lucky enough to be passing by.
After your Duchesse De Nemours has finished blooming, you can still count on a lovely shrub for your yard throughout the season. Beautiful glossy-green, oval foliage adorns this small shrub from spring through fall. After the frost, Duchesse De Nemours dies back to the ground, leaving a clean appearance for winter.
Duchesse De Nemours Peony is a herbaceous perennial shrub that will grow up to 3 feet tall with an equal spread. It has an upright nature, and is adaptive to a variety of soils and conditions. Butterflies and bees adore Duchesse De Nemours, but bunnies and deer tend to pass it by. It makes an exceptional cut flower for both its beauty and fragrance. Duchesse De Nemours would look incredible planted along a fence row near your home, as an accent in your perennial bed, or serve as a lively backdrop for other plantings.
Imagine the sight and scent of the elegant Duchesse De Nemours in your home this year! Whether as cut flowers in a vase for your kitchen table, or a shining example of floral perfection in your garden, Duchesse De Nemours is a Peony you won’t want to miss.
