Peony Herbaceous Roses - Peony Lactiflora

Magnificent Spring flowering perennial with sweet perfumed blooms reminiscent of roses. The Chinese regard these plants as the Queen of flowers and are thought to represent good fortune, love and prosperity.
Most peonies reach up to 1m in height and width. Blooms are generously sized and come in an array of rich and beautiful shades and combinations.

Planting: Plant Peonies so that their crowns are approx. 25mm deep in soil (they will not flower if planted too deeply).
Peonies prefer a loamy soil with a slightly alkaline pH of 7 to 7.5. This can be achieved by adding a few handfuls of dolomite to the soil.
Select a sunny, warm position. Feed twice a year in Spring after flowering and again in mid-Autumn with plentiful amounts of humus rich compost such as well rotted animal manure.
Mulch soil surface well but avoid covering too thickly. Cut back to ground level in ealy Winter when they are dormant.

Peter flew to China to choose these varieties, many years ago.
They are good, healthy, 2-3 eye divisions that will also flower in pots, have a gorgeous perfume and multiple flowering heads.
Our Peonies are large bare rooted stock.

Full Morning Sun to Partial Shade. Flowers in Spring. Drought Resistant. Frost hardy.
