Firstly, the bright white colours of the flowers make her very well suited for a bridal bouquet. Secondly, the flowers are medium-sized which let it combine easily with other peonies. And finally, the flowers have an exquisite fragrance. It’s this unique combination of characteristics that make Duchesse de Nemours wildly popular.

Dr. Alexander Fleming
Dr. Alexander Fleming is one of the most popular peony varieties in the world. That’s not so strange considering this peony is similar to the very popular Sara Bernhard. This variety is a cross between Sarah Bernhardt and Bunker Hill which explains why they share many characteristics. The big difference lies in the colour of Dr. Alexander Fleming, which is two shades darker than Sarah Bernhardt. The two varieties are very complementary because of this colour variation.

Monsieur Jules Elie
Monsieur Jules Elie, the Pink dream
During its more than 125 years of existence, Monsieur Jules Elie has made as many fans as adversaries. It’s not the easiest peony variety to grow. This peony has stems that are often too slight to carry the huge flowers, opens very soon making it difficult to cut successfully and suffers easily from sooty mould. But it is a true veteran that, thanks to its huge flowers and beautiful colour, has a lot of admirers. A pink dream!
