    Long Lasting Perennial with Perfect White Blooms!

    Peony ‘Gardenia’ produces an almost perfect white bloom to rival the southern gardenia! Peony Gardenia (Paeonia lactifolia ‘Gardenia’) produces a stunning double, scented, white bloom every spring for your delight.

    The old fashioned white bloom works well in most garden settings! The easy care and long life make peonies in general a great investment in the landscape. The reliable white blooms of Peony Gardenia complement spring daffodils and lilac blossoms as well as contrast beautifully with mature stands of evergreens.

    Peonies are regarded as being resistant to both deer and rabbits which makes them suitable for locations where these animals are a pest. You will notice ants on the peony but they are not harming the plants and are not an indication of problem aphids.

    Peony Gardenia prefers a full sun to part sun location in your landscape, and is hardy from zone 3 all the way down to zone 8. In warmer locations provide more shade for the delicate white blooms as they can burn in the intense afternoon sun.

    When you get your peony Gardenia root, you will see a few little eyes, like those on a potato. Plant the root just below the surface. Each of these eyes will produce a strong stem in early spring that reaches to about 30 inches tall. The stems are covered with lush, dark green leaves and by mid spring the flower stalk appear. The flowers are held above the foliage making them perfect for clipping and using indoors for arrangements or floating in a bowl of water. The slight fragrance to the flower adds to the charm.

    If you want to divide the peony, lift the whole plant in fall and divide into 2 or 3 sections each with several growing eyes. Replant the smaller sections in our landscape or give one to a friend. The smaller segments often skip a year after transplanting, so enjoy the glossy foliage for a year knowing that you will get a beautiful bloom return the following year.

    The peony Gardenia is perfect for heirloom gardens and cottage gardens, and the delightful blooms make wonderful additions to bridal bouquets as well as your table- they also make great, easy to care for perennials in the garden.

    I can't say how satisfied I am because ot comes as a tiny root. I wish the website was more upfront about what comes to you. The pictures leave out a picture of what will be shipped to you and i would assume that is intentional. It would also be nice if they told you about how long it will take for the root to look anything like the plant they show on the website.

    The plants shown on the website are beautiful, and they had very good reviews so I thought I would be safe. Unfortunately, I think I got screwed. I think your experience depends on what you order. I ordered the following items and was very upset because they are nothing like the pictures. In particular the wisteria tree and the sweet mock orange bush. I don't know what the people that gave this place 4 and 5 stars ordered, but it definitely was not one of my items. 2 of the Cecile Brunner Climbing Roses 1 of the Gardenia Peony 1 of the Purple Wisteria Tree (described as 4-5 ft) 1 of the Sweet Mock Orange (described as 2-3 ft) 2 of the Twilight Zone Roses I received twigs... barely anything. All 7 plants were delivered in a box that was 8 inches wide and 5 ft long. That is how small the plants are! They had no branches, no leaves, and definitely no flowers. Even worse, there is nothing on the website about how long it will take for the plants to look anything close to what is pictured on the website. I don't know if I will have to wait a year or 10 years. They obviously do not want to picture what actually ships to you because if you saw it you would just go to a local nursery. Very deceptive and unethical. I just really wish they had been honest, upfront, and transparent with what they ship to you.
