A Lovely Spring Border Idea with Peonies and Irises

Spring Combination Ideas, Plant Combinations, Flowerbeds Ideas, Spring Borders, Summer Borders


A border of mixed herbaceous peonies is always an image of beauty and elegance. If you plant peonies in your home garden, certainly consider planting them in groups. There is no doubt peonies are beautiful individually, but in drifts they create a magical and breathtaking scenery. Interplant them with the blue blossoms of bearded irises (Iris Germanica) and enjoy a terrific spring garden!

All plants attract butterflies, are deer and rabbit resistant and won prestigious awards!
