Peony ‘Bowl of Beauty’ is a classic and beautiful single pink peony with a great ruffle of creamy-white mini petals at the centre of each flower. This has lovely scent and lasts well as a cut flower.
Once they’ve got themselves established, there are few more magnificent garden plants and cut flowers than peonies. Their season may be quite short, but if you have room in your garden, you have to include them. They are the most luscious of all cut flowers, particularly when they’re scented – like many of these. Kept cool, they should last at least two weeks in a vase.
- These won’t flower in the first year, but gradually build up flower production every year after that
- These are 2 year old bare roots.
- Good for beginners
