  • A-collectors-peony
Not exactly pink, the petals of this double flowered Hybrid peony open deep orange-pink and turn apricot-orange with age. Introduced by eminent peony breeder Don Hollingsworth, the scent is said to be sweet and spicy. The ruffled inner petals create a dome and are encased by large, scooped guard petals. The flower stems, which carry just one bud, bear light green foliage.

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.
