This fleeting beauty produces soft lemon cupped shaped flowers on upright stems above a clump of large glaucous grey-green leaves. Once the flowers have gone the seed pods with spring open to reveal black seeds kept in place by what looks like little red teeth. Frequently featured in books and magazines I have not had much luck in getting this to be big and bushy. So try growing it in a warm spot, perhaps near a wall.

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.
