Peony Monsieur Jules Elie

Peony Monsieur Jules Elie


Paeonia lactiflora "Pioen Monsieur Jules Elie" A globe shaped lovely scented quintessential peony. There is a reason why this variety has thrived in gardens, parks and nurseries for over 100 years. Who could pass by this centenarian without an OMG-reflex! Granted, there are a few minor flaws, the stems are a bit thin and bendy, but if you are the romantic type, your garden is not complete without this grandmother of peonies.
