To date, Peony "Pastellegans" are one of the most beautiful among most other flowers. This variety was bred in 1989 by a talented breeder from the United States, Bill Seidl.
In Russia, this hybrid has appeared relatively recently. In 2013, the Pastelegans peony was presented at a flower exhibition in Moscow , where it immediately won the hearts of many inveterate gardeners and flower lovers. Despite the propagation of this variety in many flower nurseries in Europe, it is still a rare species with a high cost.
Peony "Pastellegans" have a unique pink and peach color. Their unusual shade resembles the color of tender baked milk. Inside the large and rounded petals are many small ones that together create an attractive tousled mass. The diameter of the flower reaches 20 centimeters. Golden stamens surrounded by red pestles give a special charm to the flowers. "Pastelegans" has a subtle, barely perceptible vanilla aroma.
This variety has strong stems that grow large and tall. On average, their height reaches up to 75 centimeters. The leaves of the Pastelegans peonies have a dark green, almost blue hue with a glossy tint.
How to grow?
Peonies are planted in the fall, then they are better accepted. It is advisable that the landing site is sunny. Taking into account the fact that the stems of the plants grow greatly, they need to be planted at a distance of at least 1 meter from each other.
Preparation of the landing site should be done in advance. The required amount of fertilizer and sand is poured into the pit. By the time seedlings need to be planted, the soil in the hole will be compacted, which will prevent it from sagging in the future.
If the landing pit cannot be made in advance, then the soil after planting the peonies is tamped and watered abundantly with water. Most often, after planting, the plants begin to bloom a year later, since for starters they should be taken properly.
Regular watering and timely top dressing allow the flowers to grow strong and resistant to many diseases.
In general, peonies are unpretentious plants. They adapt to different weather conditions. These flowers do not need any excessive care. Peonies are perennial plants, so they can grow in one place for several years, which is an indisputable advantage of these flowers among other species. Terry inflorescences, enchanting shades and stunning aroma make them one of the most willingly grown flowers in almost every garden.
