Peonies that Show Off and Keep Showing Up!

Breck's® Showy Lifetime Peonies are a one-time investment for a lifetime of beauty. In fact, no other plant gives so much with so little care. We've combined three of our most distinctive Lifetime Peony varieties to create this one-of-a-kind collection. Properly planted, your peonies will bloom faithfully every spring, even if entirely neglected!

The Perfect Late-Spring Perennial!

About the time your tulips have finished, big flower buds will appear and your peonies will begin to bloom. One soft petal after another slowly breaks away from the tight, round bud until each massive bloom is 12-18 cm across and spreading its heavenly fragrance. Peonies also make delightful cut flowers—each beautiful bloom becomes almost a bouquet in itself.

You'll love peonies for planting in those special spots where you want a dramatic floral show. They are excellent for open spaces among shrubs, at the edge of woodlands, as a backdrop for lower-growing flowers or along a foundation or fence. And what a delight to create a dramatic hedge all spring and summer along your walks and driveways. Plant your peonies 60-90 cm apart in full sun or partial shade. They're not at all fussy about soil!

Each of our Showy Lifetime Peony varieties are extremely hardy and grow and bloom with no special attention in Zones 3–9. Even harsh winter weather is no problem. You and your family will enjoy a lifetime of delightful foliage and fragrant, late-spring to early-summer blooms. And since roots can be divided again and again, a single planting may even provide beauty for several generations.

It's all about the Roots!

The trick to enjoying the same peonies for a lifetime is to start by planting large, top-quality root divisions. But finding such quality divisions has become increasingly difficult. Top varieties are frequently unavailable, and quite often only small field divisions are offered for sale.

That's why Breck's® is especially pleased to be able to offer our gardening friends in Canada this particularly outstanding Showy Lifetime Peony Collection. Our Dutch experts have arranged with leading peony specialists to obtain three of their finest peony masterpieces—all ideal for planting in Canadian gardens.

Our Showy Peonies are the result of years of patient development. The big, healthy, 2-3 eye field divisions are easy to plant and require little care—a gardener's dream! Even if entirely neglected, your one-time garden investment will reward you with beautiful, fragrant blooms decade after decade.

This collection includes 1 each of the following varieties.

Mutabilis Plena:- The blooms of this oldfashioned variety emerge earlier than most and change colour throughout the season. Enjoy dark pink, pure white and everything in between! Not to be overlooked, the copper-burgundy foliage of spring becomes deep green in summer, then a soft yellow in fall. 45-60 cm tall.

Black Beauty:- This striking, nearly black variety is the darkest bush peony ever offered and a hard one to find! Fully double, deep burgundy blooms are highlighted by bright yellow stamens, creating a unique and dramatic look. 90-120 cm tall.

Sarah Bernhardt:- Jumbo pink blossoms up to 20 cm across are fully double with ruffled inner petals. Winner of the RHS Award of Garden Merit, this variety is famous among peony lovers, and we're proud to add it to our elite collection. The world's most popular cut peony, Sarah's perfumed flowers are a favourite of florists and can last over a week in a vase. 60-75 cm tall.
