A Fragrant June Bouquet? You Can Grow That!

If you want beautiful, fragrant cut flowers in early June, plant peonies, lady’s mantle, nepeta, and hakon grass. (AKA Paeonia varieties, Alchemilla mollis, Nepeta racemosa ‘Walker’s Low’, and Hakonechloa macra ‘Aureola’) These are all easy to grow perennials as long as you have at least 6 hours of dead-on sun and are willing to pull up weeds that sprout around them. For this attention you get many bouquets that perfume the room you place them in.

Pale pink or dark pink, single, semi-double or fully double, peonies are spectacular.
