I purchased 3 tree peonies that Michigan Bulb called Heavenly Scent in May 2008. I can't find anything showing that Heavenly Scent Tree Peony is a valid registered name. Did anyone else out there buy any of these trees? I'd like to get a correct name on them if possible, my best guess is Paeonia Ostii just because the bloom looks pretty close to the same. Couldn't find many white singles to compare....

Michigan Bulb and Spring Hill are notorious about having misnamed plants. It is their wholesale vendors who just pick names out of thin air. I bought from them several years ago but have not lately.

Yeah, you can never be sure you are getting what you are ordering from MB or SH. The plant quality is usually substandard too. There are much better places to spend your cash. That said, we've all been there, and done that. Smiling LOL

Sorry I can't help with a name, but it's a gorgeous flower, regardless! Thumbs up
