New 2013 Introduction Romantic Lace Peony

Peony Romantic Lace VERY FRAGRANT! SOLD OUT  (Tischler/Buchite 2013)

Peony Romantic Lace was registered and introduced in 2013. It is very fragrant compared to Myrtle Gentry which is recognized as one of the most fragrant peonies. That quality along with it's subtle pastel tones and delicate flower form add to it's appeal. The dark pink buds open to a lovely 5 1/2 inch Japanese form flower held a few inches above a dense compact plant with dark green, disease resistant foliage. The 10-12 lavender-pink guard petals have a silvery white cast to the edges as the flower matures and hold their cupped form as the bloom ages. The creamy, amber pink center staminodes are flattened and cupped with each finely laced edge highlighted by a bright gold accent when freshly opened. Three side buds extend the mid-season bloom. No pollen noted but we had a few seeds collected from our plants this fall. Very fragrant with the fragrance rich and pleasing. It has shown excellent bud and plant hardiness during extreme weather conditions during pre-bloom and bloom season. No loss of bloom or foliage damage during several severe springs making it a vigorous variety adapted to adverse weather. In 2013 after 10 inches of rain during peak bloom it was among only a handful of peonies still standing in the field along with Peony Ben Erickson. Plant in full sun. Week 5 bloom date rating.

Many times we are asked, what fragrant peonies do we grow? We had a list of our own and with a great deal of researching many peony books both old and new and asking our customers to let us know which they thought were notable fragrant peony varieties in their gardens we have put together the following offerings. Add a few fragrant peonies to your garden to increase your pleasure and relaxation.

Some of our favorite fragrant peonies include; Chestine Gowdy, Kansas, Myrtle Gentry and Noemie Demay. Myrtle Gentry is considered by many to be the most fragrant, but according to our customers Romantic Lace is more fragrant and offers a wonderful pastel blend of colors and has been an excellent cut flower. Those who prefer a peony with a clear true red color can choose from Diana Parks or Henry Bockstoce two hybrid doubles that are very fragrant. Consider the Fragrant French Peony, Madame Calot for the French Country Garden, and Hermione which I wish was in bloom all year long.

Many antique varieties from France like, August Dessert, Mme de Verneville and Mme Emile Lemoine are deliciously fragrant. These peonies were selected as cut flower varieties for people who wanted them to be brought indoors and enjoyed not just for their color but fragrance also.

Don't limit yourself to the doubles but consider some of the unusual forms and color combinations of fragrant peonies like; Romantic Lace, Bouquet Perfect and Pink Hawaiian Coral.

Sea Shell, an APS Gold Medal winner is noted for it's pleasant fragrance and is one of the few singles that make a great cut flower. It has also received the Award of Landscape Merit meaning it does not have to be staked in the garden!

As you may guess not all people agree on which peonies are the most fragrant. My favorite fragrant peony? I hate to pick one but those at the top of my list would be Romantic Lace for the most strongly fragrant in our garden.
