Availability: Out of stock

Paeonia Francoise Ortegat is a double, dark purple-red coloured peony. It is one of the most fragrant flowers. This very old peony (over 150 years) deserves to be rediscovered because of its attractive fragrance and flowering qualities. It will reach a height of around 80-90cms (3ft).

Herbaceous Peonies will last a lifetime in your garden providing late spring displays of show-stopping ruffled blooms each year with little effort. Plant them into the middle of herbaceous borders, where they will add structure and of course, rich colours.

Something you may not have known about peonies is that the petals are edible, add to salads or float on punch for an opulent treat. They can also be cooked slightly and sweetened for a treat. Peony water was also once considered a delicacy - there are some amazing recipes around online to try.

Supplied in approx 5 litre containers, these plants are of a size and age ready to flower in season.
