Mons. Jules Elie
$35.00 (excl. tax)
If only this peony could talk, oh the tales it would tell! This heirloom bomb-double, a product of the esteemed late 19th century French breeding that has produced many classics, has certainly seen a lot, from widespread cultivation to wherever herbaceous peonies can be successfully grown to prominence in the cut flower industry. The huge, bomb-double blooms wear a light rose-pink with a demure silver quality and are produced in abundance on free flowering plants. A strong, sweet rose scent is pervasive wherever he is present, whether it is in the garden where he is best grown with support or in the vase where he is an ideal and long-treasured subject due to fantastic cut flower qualities. The vigor of this plant has contributed to its widespread cultivation and speaks to its inclination to increase. A strong grower that is still popular to this day in the garden and cut flower industry, Monsieur Jules Elie is a classic through and through. Some side buds extend the blooming period.
