Very early to bloom, this lovely low growing peony produces single, open cupped, cerise pink. These sit just above a dome of grey-green leaves. Sold as young plants grown from seed. So may take a year or two to bloom.
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.
