This selection of RHS award-winning peonies is the ultimate in garden glamour. All anemone-style peonies, the flowers are composed of huge, fragrant bowls holding ruffled petaloids in the centre. Not only judged highly for their beauty, but also their sturdy stature, the robust stems hold up well against the weather and provide good, long-lasting specimens for cut flower displays.

  • Peony 'Jan van Leeuwen' - An enduring classic, dating from 1928. Pristine white outer petals form crisply cut bowls enfolding golden petaloids. This mid-season peony has an RHS Award of Garden Merit and was a winner of Best in Show at Chelsea. Height :60cm (24”). Spread: 75cm (30”).
  • Peony 'Doreen' - Lightly scented blooms composed of layers of bright, rosy-pink petals encircling a prominent pompon of frilly yellow stamens. RHS AGM. Height: 90cm (36”). Spread: 50cm (20”).

3 Bare Root Plants (1 Of Each Variety) (KF0368)

Bare roots should be planted at the earliest opportunity following delivery. Grow peonies in a sunny or semi shaded position on fertile, moist, well drained soil. Peony plants prefer a heavy soil that is rich in organic matter. Improve the soil prior to planting by adding plenty of well rotted manure or garden compost prior to planting. Plant herbaceous peonies so that the top of the crown is just 5cm (2”) below the soil surface, taking care not to plant too deeply as this may prevent or delay peonies from flowering.
Feed and water peonies regularly until plants are fully established. In exposed positions the stems may require staking to support the large peony flowers. Cut back old foliage in autumn. When growing peonies on light sandy soil, a spring mulch of well rotted manure or garden compost may be applied around the base of the plant, taking care not to bury the crown as this may delay flowering.
