Peony 'Augustin d'Hour'
  • Peony-augustin-d'hour1
Opening into a double flower, the petals of the pinkish-red blooms are densely packed into a low dome and surround by a ring of short guard petals. As the bloom ages, the petals become silvery along the edges and loosen slightly. Borne on red stems with dark green foliage, this forms nice, free-flowering clump. Also sold as Paeonia 'General MacMahon'.

Care advice

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.
