Embodying the true spirit of grace and beauty, Paeonia 'Alertie' has found a special place in the enchanting gardens of Natchez Glen House. This captivating peony, introduced by the talented Dutch nurseryman Aart Hoogendoorn in 1954, continues to charm gardeners and visitors alike with its elegant semi-double blooms and delightful fragrance.
At Natchez Glen House, 'Alertie' reveals its splendor as a mid-season bloomer, adorning the garden with a harmonious blend of white and pink hues. The delicate petals sparkle with a pristine white base, gently kissed by a soft pink blush, as if meticulously hand-painted by nature's finest artist. As the blooms mature, the pink blush grows more vivid, creating a mesmerizing display of color.
Adding to the visual feast, 'Alertie' presents striking red outer sepals that support the guard petals, providing a lovely contrast to the lighter, more ethereal petals. This peony's charm extends beyond its appearance, as it also offers a pleasant fragrance that only serves to enhance its allure.
The legacy of Aart Hoogendoorn lives on through the thriving 'Alertie' peonies at Natchez Glen House, connecting gardeners to a history of passion and dedication that spans over 70 years. As you stroll through the gardens and admire the timeless beauty of 'Alertie,' take a moment to appreciate the incredible journey of this extraordinary peony, and let its charm and elegance inspire you, as it has done for generations of peony enthusiasts.
