The Alexander Fleming Peony is a classic double peony, with very large, 8-inch blooms of many petals. It is a rich rose-pink, fading to lighter pink at the petal edges, and it flowers in early June. Stems have lots of side-buds that extend blooming in the garden, and the strong stems hold up the blooms very well. The decorative foliage makes this an attractive shrub-like plant when it is not in bloom. Grow it in all styles of garden, from formal to cottage and Asian too. Plant a row along a path or at the foot of a wall. This plant lives for decades, and it needs almost no care to thrive.

  • Large, full, rose-pink blooms in early June
  • Richly perfumed blossoms
  • Beautiful foliage when not in bloom
  • Long-lived specimen for beds and borders
  • Fully hardy even in zone 3

Grow the Alexander Fleming Peony in full sun or light partial shade. It is completely hardy in zone 3, so ideal for northern gardens. It grows south to zones 7 or 8, and it thrives across most of the country. Plant in rich, well-drained soil of any kind, and mulch in fall with compost or other organic materials. Pests and diseases rarely bother it, and both deer and rabbits leave it alone. Choose a suitable spot when first planting, as this plant doesn’t move well. Plant with the buds or stem bases just an inch or so below ground and give it a year or two to become established.
