This perennial dies back to below ground level each year in autumn, then fresh new growth appears again in spring.

  • Soil: fertile, moisture-retentive yet well-drained
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: June to July
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    Brilliant crimson-pink double flowers, touched with silver, from early to midsummer and deep green leaves. This is one of the most popular peonies grown for cut flowers, and it's an old favourite from the nineteenth century. It looks lovely in a partially sunny border with foxgloves and plants with sword-like foliage, such as day lilies.

  • Garden care: Deadhead after flowering. In early spring apply a balanced slow-release fertiliser around the base of the plant and mulch with well-rotted compost or manure. Fungal diseases may occur in cool, wet springs so prune out any affected parts and spray the remaining sections with fungicide.
  • Pets: Skin irritant
