There are almost no yellow herbaceous peonies. The ones there are very expensive. This comes close. White guard petals surround a mound of centre of slim, fringed, cream petals. With age the flower passes to white. Scented. 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.
