The cupped very dark red single flowers get bigger as it ages, but stay largely cupped. In the centre is a thick tuft of cream stamens. Really pleased to be able to offer this one again. Very early season.
Peonies will grow in most soils as long as they are not wet, including clay soils. They require a sunny or partially shaded site. Herbaceous peonies need to be planted with the eye (the dormant pink buds) no more than 2.5cm below the surface of the soil. Do not mix manure in the soil before planting as this may rot the eyes.
