A familiar sight in many cottage gardens, peonies are well known for their delightfully colourful displays in late spring. Peony ‘Candy Stripe’ goes above and beyond this however due to the impressive marbling effect the large blooms have; boasting both pink and white mixed together to produce a magnificent striping effect. Given plenty of help from plant support to help hold the blooms above the foliage, this hardy plant will just get bigger and better every single year. Height: 90cm (35”). Spread: 90cm (35”).

Culinary information: The petals can be added to salads, or cooked slightly and sweetened for a treat. Peony water was also once considered a delicacy and the blooms can be floated in punches. For more details about edible flowers click here.

Grow peonies in a sunny or semi shaded position. They prefer a well drained, rich fertile soil. This is best achieved by adding with plenty of well rotted manure or compost to the soil prior to planting, ensuring that it is mixed in thoroughly and deeply. Plant herbaceous peonies at a depth of around 5cm (2") below the soil surface. Planting too deeply may delay flowering.
Water regularly until peony plants are fully established. Thereafter, herbaceous peonies require little maintenance and will grow happily for many years if left undisturbed. However, they will appreciate a mulch of well rotted manure or garden compost applied around the base of the plant in spring. Plants may take several years to establish before they produce their spectacular peony flowers.
