Product Information

Without doubt, one of the most impactful and beautiful perennial plants you can grow, the simply huge and striking two-tone flowers of Peony 'Bowl of Beauty' are a Spring joy to behold. Peonies are bang on trend at present and make great flowers for the vase too - cut when the buds are just about to pop. As seen in all the top florists!

Despite their looks, they are very robust and weatherproof - needing perhaps a little support when mature in exposed spots, as their flowers are just so big - up to 25cm (10in) across when open. They establish slowly into large clumps over years, if not decades, to create a real feature.

Grow in garden soil, in most spots, but avoid very boggy or very sandy, and fertilise well when they grow. New shoots emerge quickly in late March, and flower in May and June. In late Summer, they die back under and are dormant - the best time to lift and transplant.

Hardy, easy, spectacular, - a real Bowl of Beauty for sure.

Supplied as a pack of 3 dormant bare roots, to plant straight out in garden border in Autumn or early Spring. 2-3 nose roots.

Top Tips

Be careful not to overwater newly planted Peonies, especially those that have been planted into decorative pots rather than the ground. They are best kept slightly on the dry side!

Care Information

  • Despite the myths that surround them, peonies are easy to grow.
  • They need plenty of water as long as they don't get waterlogged, so plant your peonies in soil that drains well. Clay is fine as long as it doesn't stay wet.
  • Peonies flower at their best in full sun, but they will tolerate light shade.
  • Feed with a general fertiliser in spring, but avoid over-feeding with high nitrogen fertilisers.
  • To conserve moisture and suppress weeds, mulch around the crown with 5-7.5cm (2-3in) organic matter. Avoid covering the crown itself.
  • The flower stems may not be strong enough to keep the often-heavy flamboyant flowers upright and staking is often required.
  • It is generally best to cut the foliage to ground level as it dies back in the autumn to reduce risk of peony wilt.
  • Peonies seldom need to be divided or moved, but if necessary it should be carried out only in the autumn.
