These lovely flowers are richly ruffled, heaven-scented, and simply layered with color. Like all Peonies, they last an extraordinary amount of time after cutting, and they look absolutely fantastic in the garden, too -- passersby will stop in their tracks to see what looks like an exotic hot-house bloom happily showing off in your sunny perennial border!
The flowers arise in early summer in most climates, on plants that reach 32 to 34 inches high and spread about 36 inches wide. Most Peonies do not have a strong scent, but 'Celebrity' is wonderfully fragrant, sharing its aroma with the entire garden. Perfume the home with even a small bouquet of these beauties!
Peonies are as long-lived as shrubs or trees, blooming for many decades. Give them well-drained soil and pamper them for a season or two; they take a while to make themselves at home. Once they have found their feet, however, there's no stopping them! You will love 'Celebrity' for countless summers to come! Zones 3-8.
