An old French introduction that I just love. The pink flower-in-a-flower flowers are often generously splashed with carmine red. The flowers fade to blush. Unfortunately, over the decades, these old cultivars often get mixed up in commerce and though I try to validate their identity with two sources, I’m afraid I have but one source for Thérèse. Published descriptions are contradictory. Despite the doubt, what I grow under the name of Thérèse is an extremely pretty peony.

A Note on Observations
Observations of height, side buds, and staking are from Hudson, Quebec (zone 5a) grown in full sun, in a clay based soil. In different environments plants will perform slightly different. Instead of 1 to 2 side buds per stem, you may have none. If growing in slightly shadier environment, your peony may require staking. The observations are meant as a general guide, in how your peony should perform in optimal planting. In the case of fragrance, these are observations based on personal sniff tests in the field, we must bear in mind our olfactory senses are all different.
