Paeonia Jan van Leeuwen
Perfection in pure, satiny white, this single Japanese Peony brings understated elegance to your garden. The cup-shaped, lightly fragrant blossoms of ‘Jan van Leeuwen’ enfold a deep yellow center. Introduced in 1928. Late.
Peonies produce their extravagant display in early June every year, regardless of weather, because they are among the most durable and longest-lived plants. They have no natural enemies, no exacting cultural requirements beyond full sun and neutral to slightly sweet soil, and they shrug off cold. After bloom is complete, you are left with a handsome mound of glossy, deep green foliage that will happily anchor the next sequence of bloom in the neighborhood. Finally, Peonies make superior cut flowers, lasting more than a week if cut in full bud.
