is providing one 'Gardenia
' peony. 'Gardenia’ is a blush white lactiflora group peony which was bred by Mr. E. H. Lins of Cologne, Minnesota and released in 1948. It is a fine garden peony which is not widely offered and included in our novelty collection. Flowers are large and as the name might imply formed akin to gardenia flowers. It is slightly scented giving off a faint sweet fragrance. The stems are clad in dark green semi glossy foliage which contrasts the white blooms perfectly. The plant is medium tall and will need light support in the viewed landscape due to the weight of the large full double flowers. This cultivar is midseason to late midseason flowering. The flowers are generally of exhibition quality. It is a perfect garden peony that also has excellent cut flower qualities.
The bare root peonies will be shipped in the fall - around mid October. If the winner is located in Alaska we can ship in September to accommodate. For all other states October is appropriate. Please note peonies do not grow well in Florida, Southern California and areas south of I-20. This prize is only available to winners within the geographic limitations outlined above.
