Paeonia lactiflora 'Pecher'

Early/mid season bloomer. Semi-double flowers of pale pink and creamy white petals. Dividing not necessary. If dividing it must be done in the fall. Because of North Carolina heat, it helps to plant in some afternoon shade. *Deer Resistant* Attracts: Birds, Butterflies, Bees & Hummingbirds ***A common problem faced by peony growers, however, is the congregation of ants on the flowers. Peony buds secrete a sap that is rich in carbohydrates, and the ants feed on this substance. One of the most effective ways to control an ant problem on peonies is to spray the plants with an insecticide. Before choosing a product to spray, make sure that the manufacturer specifically states that the product is effective against ants. **
