Double White Have an unforgettable fragrance, are unexcelled for cutting and may live 30 or 40 years or longer.

Blooms in Spring. When planting the buds should never be more than 2"deep, and feed each peony a big handful of bonemeal (calcium) in September.  When dividing you want 3 or 4 buds per division.

Snip off spent flowers back to the first leaf to keep the plants looking tidy; leave as much foliage as possible to feed the plant.
