Go Back Monsieur Jules Elie Peony

Paeonia 'Monsieur Jules Elie'

Plant Type: Peonies

The award-winning 'Mons. Jules Elie' is noted for its double pink bloom with beautiful, smooth rosy pink guard petals surrounding a mound of inward-curved silvery-pink petals, providing a slight two-toned effect. Large, light rose-pink. Center incurved and silvered with light grayish pink coloring. Free flowering, fragrant and good cut flower variety. Stems need support when grown in the landscape.

This peony is the recipient of the Award of Garden Merit of the Royal Horticultural Society.

Peonies are tough, undemanding perennials that can bloom happily for a century or more with little care. Choose a sunny to lightly shaded spot to plant with good air circulation and plenty of room for them to grow. Because they like ample water, they do best in somewhat heavier clay-type soils and away from the roots of trees and shrubs.

When planting, water deeply and maintain even soil moisture until the ground freezes to help the plant develop as many feeder roots as possible its first fall.
