-37% Garden Peony (Paeonia Lactiflora) 10 seeds (#569)

Herbaceous peonies are an all-time garden favorite. These large, bushy perennials originate from eastern Asia and have been bred for thousands of years.
They are primarily grown for their large, showy flowers that may be single, semi-double or double and come in milky white color.Bloom time is from spring to early summer. Their large, dark green leaves have a bold texture and are often tinted with red or bronze early in the season.
Peony flowers are very fragrant and make outstanding cut flowers. In fact, their sweetness tends to attract ants, which can be found climbing the stems to gather nectar from the round, bulbous, unopened peony buds.
These old-fashioned perennials are very long-lived and have been known to survive in gardens for over 100-years. Plant them in foundation plantings or any floral border. (info source: Learn2Grow.com)

GERMINATION INSTRUCTIONS
1. Plant 3 or 4 seeds in small 8-ounce plant containers filled with potting soil. They should be about 1/2 inch deep and about an inch apart from one another. Water the soil well and allow to drain.
2. Slip the whole pot into a plastic bag and close it off to form a humid growing chamber. Set it aside to grow for about three months, during which time the roots will grow. Around December, place the whole bag in a cool spot like your garage or garden shed where it stays just above freezing for another three months.
3. Bring the plant out of its hiding place and out of the plastic bag when spring has arrived or around late March. Plant the tiny little rootling in a sheltered part of your garden. You should see a leaf or two shooting up over the growing season, but not much growth.
4. Mulch the little peony plants with some ground up leaves or hay in the fall. Let them weather out the winter and in the spring you should see a plant emerge ready for blossoming. Some are slower to grow than others; so if one doesn't blossom, just wait -- it will in time. (info source: eHow.com)
