A bomb-shaped flower with soft yellow petals intwined petals. The flower may be flatter and more open (like an anemone) when young, but as the plant matures the flowers become fuller. A nicely scented rarity. June. Mid 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.
