anyone? :)

RE: Anyone grown these? Comments?

I thought others who grew more than one might answer before now. I only grow one of these 'Pillow Talk', and I love it. It is a Gold Medal Winner from 1994 and it seems to have one of the most disease resistant foliages of any of my peonies (and I have many). The flower is a nice full double and has a dark pink color. The foliage is a medium green and the bush grows in a nice pattern and the stems hold up very well. The bush does not fall over as the season progresses. I highly recommend it. I hope this helps.

I'm sorry I can't say much about the others since I don't grow them, but I have heard that 'Attar of Roses' is very fragrant and have considered purchasing that one.
