Indeed, the scent is so perfume-like, you could be smelling a Rose. And, if fragrance were not enough, the pink, double flowers on this vigorous, compact plant measure up to 7in across. 'Eden's Perfume' is glorious in a vase. Midseason.
Plants in the genus Paeonia generally like full sun and neutral to slightly sweet soil, and they shrug off cold. After bloom is complete, you are left with a handsome mound of glossy, deep green foliage that will happily anchor the next sequence of bloom in the neighborhood. Peonies make superior cut flowers, lasting more than a week if cut in full bud.
Southerners should seek out our early bloomers and provide afternoon shade.
