Peony Monsieur Jules Elie

If childhood memories include gorgeous pink peonies from your grandmother's garden, ones with lots of full blossoms and perfume that made you swoon, there's a very good chance the variety was Monsieur Jules Elie. First introduced in 1888, this peony has graced countless gardens, edged thousands of driveways and been the featured flower on dining room tables across America for generations. Monsieur Jules Elie is an early bloomer with large, fully double rose-pink blossoms and plants that grow to almost three feet with a two foot spread. Deer resistant. (If this wasn't your childhood pink peony, check out Sarah Bernhardt as that's the other likely contender.)
