Peony 'Requiem'

Peony 'Requiem'
  • Mpp_peony-requiem1
Opening into a very pale pink, faintly apple-scented bloom, the waxy petals turn almost white with age. Long, slender staminodes, which are red at the bottom and curl at the top, create a central dome that is punctured by the bright pink tips of the soft-green carpels. Strong flower stems carry one or two side buds and dark green leaves. If any unforeseen late-spring frosts happen to catch the blooms, the staminodes will inevitably become blackened. Otherwise, this is a very beautiful peony.

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.
