Enchanting color that lasts for generations! Peonies can live for a century! Romantic color and delicate fragrance make them exquisite as cut flowers and attractive to hummingbirds and butterflies.

Eye-catching blooms open as most peonies are winding down for the season. Typically blooming around Memorial Day, 'Benjamin Franklin' extends the season with a bright profusion of blossoms. Peonies are attractive both in and out of bloom, making them ideal for borders, specimen plantings, and eclectic cottage gardens. 'Benjamin Franklin' will even thrive in a large a container!

One of the hardiest perennials you can grow! Peonies are tough plants that thrive for decades, resist deer and rabbits, and require little care. Plant peonies in full sun to light shade, provide them plenty of root space, and water as needed. They will reward you for years!
