This hard-to-find plant is often talked about but rarely seen, so we're really excited to have it as part of our range at last.

It is hugely sophisticated with an understated beauty, producing buds in rich, pinkish bronze which open to whopping, citrus-yellow flowers.

These perennial peonies have been carefully and expertly raised from seed by a specialist grower over a five year period, resulting in plants which are definitely worth the investment.

Reviewed 25th April 2018 by Joanne Griffith

Ordered in November and arrived as expected at the end of February. I kept it undercover until early April as the weather was very cold and I didn't want to "shock it". I put it outside and hardened it off for a couple of weeks before preparing the planting area.
I came to plant it out and it had not rooted into the pot at all and all the soil fell away leaving the tuber, 2 or 3 very spindly roots as well as two leaf stalks.
After contacting customer services I have as advised put it back in the pot and will look at it again in a few weeks.
I am disappointed that for the money paid, I have received such an immature specimen.
