It is not often we can offer a peony introduced in the 21st century. This double blush pink variety was raised by the wonderful Don Hollingsworth in the USA. It has large, double blush pink, powder puff flowers that pale to white as they age. The blooms are held on strong upright stems. Mildly fragrant. Mid to late 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.
