Monsieur Jules Elie Peony (Bareroots Plant) 3-4 Eyes, Perennial Shrub.
Monsieur Jules Elie Peony is a large double flowering pink Peony.
Paeonia lactiflora 'Monsieur Jules Elie' is an upright bush growing peony covered with dark green leaves that create the perfect backdrop for the huge colorful, fragrant pink blooms. Peonies work in most any garden setting and add a touch of nostalgia to your garden setting.
Peony Monsieur Jules Elie blooms midseason, which generally will be late spring to early summer.
Peonies are tough, undemanding perennials that can bloom happily for a century or more with little care. Choose a sunny to lightly shaded spot to plant with good air circulation and plenty of room for them to grow. Because they like ample water, they do best in somewhat heavier clay-type soils and away from the roots of trees and shrubs.
When planting, water deeply and maintain even soil moisture until the ground freezes to help the plant develop as many feeder roots as possible its first fall. To protect the delicate roots the first winter, apply mulch. After the ground freezes, mound the newly planted area with 2-4 inches of soil or 5-8 inches of a fluffy, non-matting mulch such as straw, cornstalks, peat moss, or evergreen boughs – but not leaves.
Tip: Potted dormant perennials can be kept in a well-lit cool/cold area (i.e. garage, shed, even in a protected area outdoors) until ready for spring planting. Do not allow them to completely dry out.
