Rich pink petals open into a shallow, flat, fragrant flower and as they uncurl further a centre of short petals is revealed with each lightly notched petal curling around the next. Opens mid to late flowering season.
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.
