Peony Monsieur Jules Elie, Paeonia lactiflora 'Monsieur Jules Elie', is a favorite for late spring display and is prized for its very large, fragrant, double light rose-pink flowers that displays a silvery sheen.
The plant forms an upright bush of dark green leaves, remaining attractive all season. Peony Monsieur Jules Elie seldom needs to be divided or moved, but if it is needed, it should be done in the fall.
