    Our peony season if completely over. Pastelegance was chosen as the Peony of the Year. That’s not a favorite of mine as it doesn’t grow too well here (Belgium). It has a very beautiful double flower, I cannot argue with that, but the plant habit is failing here. One that has a somewhat comparable color (perhaps a little paler) is Just Peachy, shown here. I much prefer that one as it grows quicker, healthier, has straighter stems and is more floriferous. It’s a bit short perhaps, so as a cut flower that may present a problem, although the large clean buds and large pretty flowers (mostly semi-double) are clearly very attractive. It’s still a bit rare, but when available usually less expensive than Pastelegance.

    As I was looking for some more info on this, I found I’ve already written something on it a few years ago:
