The foliage stays glossy and green all summer long, and attracts almost no pests. They are deer resistant, fragrant and great for cut flower arrangements. Feed them, water them, and the clumps will expand rapidly, and more and more blooms will result.  Flowers are heavy so stake or use peony rings to keep them upright.
