Peony 'Cuckoo's Nest'

Peony 'Cuckoo's Nest'
  • Peony-cuckoos-nest1
The outer ring of deep raspberry red petals sits in two rows around a dome of red staminoides that are tipped with yellow. The foliage is said to have olive tints, but as this is a new variety I'm yet to see it. Looks fabulous though. A Japanese styled Hybrid peony that flowers mid June.

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.
