Lemon Chiffon Peonies Will Make A Zesty Addition To Your Garden

If the cold wintery weather has you dreaming of a long and warm summer I don't blame you. I'm counting the days until the end of winter, too. And I can't wait for the flowers to bloom.

Speaking of flowers I just discovered the prettiest and the most summery flower of them all with the most delicious name. It's the Lemon Chiffon Peony and you're gonna love it.

The Paeonia "Lemon Chiffon," or better known as Lemon Chiffon peony won the American Peony Society’s Best in Show in 2000.

And it's been gardeners' favorite for many years.

It has distinctive pale yellow flowers and attractive foliage.

It will definitely add some cheer to your garden. I gotta say, I certainly see the appeal of this flower.

It's actually a hybrid plant. It's been crossed with the breeds "Salmon Dream" and "Reath No. F-3".

"Reath No. F-3" is also a hybrid, a cross between "Cream Delight" and "Moonrise." Lemon Chiffon peonies first entered the garden scene in 1981.

This peony is a gardener's favorite not only because of its pretty flowers, but also because it's very weather-resistant and easy to take care of.

Sounds like dream to me.

The Lemon Chiffon will thrive in full sun or partial shade.

It's a mid-season bloom that will flower in late spring and early summer. You should expect blooms in June.

It will actually grow up to 32 inches in height and 24 to 36 inches in width.

As you can see it's a pretty sizeable plant that looks absolutely gorgeous.

It will require a deep plot of well-drained soil.

And believe it or not, it's actually resistant to deer. So it's a good plant to have in your garden.

You should be able to find it in your local neighborhood nursery or you can always look for it online.

It makes for a beautiful wedding bouquet, too.

I'm so happy I found this gorgeous plant.

It would make for a great addition to any garden. I might even consider including it in my wedding bouquet.
