Enjoy holiday candy in spring with the Peppermint Stick Peony (Paeonia 'Peppermint Stick') from Nature Hills! While these treats aren't minty, the pure white fringed petals are candy-striped with bright red and have a deliriously sweet scent! Each of these bowls of beauty is full of a crown of bright yellow anthers at the center of each glorious bloom!

Backed by a dense clump of lobed, green foliage, the sturdy stems of these long-lasting perfumed blooms stand tall to resist flopping! They also hold up as focal points in the vase for weeks when picked just as the buds begin to barely unfurl! After just a couple years in the ground, you'll enjoy lush green clumps 24-36 inches tall when in bloom and 3-4 feet wide all growing season! Then in fall, the glossy foliage transforms to purplish or gold!

Quality bareroot herbaceous Peonies grow from compact rhizomes with thick, fleshy roots and several 'eyes', and are best planted in the fall or early spring. So cold hardy and rugged blooms, Chrysanthemum-form Peony thrive in USDA growing zones 3-8 with little maintenance.

Planting and Application:

Peonies produce the showiest and most fragrant blooms you can imagine and are perfect additions to cut flower gardens and pollinator borders! Use Peony in your perennial border or mixed shrub garden and cottage gardens! The lush foliage provides a great backdrop for other blooms all summer into fall. Pair it with mid-season and late-season bloomers to keep your garden bright and colorful from spring into summer.

Start your own Peony garden and simultaneously start your own pollinator garden too! These vibrant blooms smell lovely and taste great for hummingbirds and butterflies. The Peppermint Stick Peony features a sturdy, stiff stem that doesn't falter when it comes to keeping its blooms upright. This makes these flowers perfect for cut flower arrangements!

  • Large White & Bright Red Semi-Double Flowers

#ProPlantTips for Care:

This perennial is long-lived and tenacious. Plant your Peony in a sunny spot with well-drained soil, ensuring good air circulation. Provide well-drained moderate moisture while first establishing, but then once established, these rhizomes are drought tolerant. This tenacious perennial will come back and flower year after year and reliably produce stunning flowers in late spring. Deadhead after bloom and cut the foliage down after it yellows.
