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.
