More Details

‘Itoh’ peonies have been around for a while now and many who visit Chelsea will have been amazed by the scale of their spectacular blooms. They are unlike any other traditional peony, being an intersectional cross between herbaceous and tree peonies. They’re highly collectable and desirable.

‘Julia Rose’ has huge, fragrant, deep pink flowers fading to apricot and cream amidst finely cut divided foliage, emerging red in spring and turning green before changing back to red in autumn.

Sowing, Seeds, Planting Ideally, plant bare-root peonies while the soil is still warm in the autumn, or as it warms up in the spring. Container-grown plants can be planted at any time. Peonies prefer heavier soils (but not waterlogged), in a sunny or lightly shaded position. Mix plenty of organic matter into the planting hole and add grit on very heavy soils. Don’t plant too deep. The eyes of the peony roots should be no more than 3-5cm below the soil surface. Any deeper and they may not flower well. For the same reason, avoid mulching as this will gradually bury the crown. Herbaceous peonies are fine in a pot for a few years but their large root system will ultimately outgrow it. Shield from sun and use a soil-based compost with extra grit and lime.
Care Tips Water regularly in dry spells during the first year to aid establishment. To promote growth and flowers, apply a general-purpose fertiliser. Then mulch with a layer of garden compost or well-rotted manure to conserve moisture and suppress weeds, but avoid covering the centre of the plant as this could damage the buds. Many peonies have very large flower heads so it’s useful to support the stems by staking.
