‘Dr. Alex Fleming’ has beautiful, fully double flowers that are loaded with cleanly colored, deep pink petals. These double blossoms are very fragrant and a favorite for flower bouquets. The Peony is an extremely long-lived, hardy, shrub-like plant. Once they’re established, they’re as hardy and dependable as oaks, creating a fantastic season of bloom in your yard year after year. The spreading clumps form hedges. Peonies are a standard of the perennial border, both as specimens and in groups. Also effective as accents or herbaceous hedges along fences, sidewalks, driveways or walls. Flowers are extremely showy, and foliage remains attractive throughout the growing season, either alone or as a frame or backdrop for other flowering perennials. Excellent cut flower.
