Design Ideas Peonies are among the most coveted perennials of the highbrow border. Their big bushy shape is outstanding in foundation planting and beds close to outdoor living spaces. They can also blend naturally into more casual settings creating focal points and bold color in season. A gorgeous plant for flower filled lawn islands and in high profile front yard locations. A cutting garden essential.
