Mons Jules Elie (Pink) Peony has broad pink petals that surround a central mound of smaller petals that are slightly lighter giving it a two-toned effect. Peonies have spectacular, fragrant double flowers bloom May to June and striking, glossy, green foliage all summer. The blooms are sometimes a little too much for the slender stems and may need to be staked to help hold them up. Peonies are ideal for gardens as low hedge plants or for cut flowers. Once they are established, they are very hardy. Sometimes ants may show up on the buds but they will not do any harm to them. If they are still hanging around when the blooms are harvested, just rinse them off.
