Description

Sweetly scented with pale-pink flowers, this is favoured by commercial cut flower producers. It's very productive and reliable and has good disease resistance and a good vase life.

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.

Care Tips

In early spring apply a balanced slow-release fertiliser around the base of the plant and mulch with well-rotted compost, avoid burying crown. Will not flower in its first year. Only take 1 or 2 stems from a plant for cutting.
