The Most Fragrant Peony

by Charlie Nardozzi


Peonies are widely grown spring garden plants, and their large, colorful flowers are showstoppers in the garden. The foliage provides three seasons of color and is seldom bothered by deer and other critters. However, while there are many fragrant peonies, few have a strong scent.

The ‘Gardenia’ peony is an exception. Not only is it good-looking, with fully double, soft white blossoms on strong stems, it has a strong fragrance as well. The fragrance can fill a room when flowers are cut and brought indoors. 'Gardenia' is a late-blooming variety so it will end your peony season on a high note.
