This delicate looking, short peony has wonderful deeply cut, fern-like, mid-green leaves. Each stem of leaves produces a single deeply cupped, soft pink flower for a short time. Not difficult to grow, but one for the collector.
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.
