Rounded clusters up to 25cm across are formed by the densely-packed pale apricot-yellow petals. These magnificent blooms produce a wonderful display in late spring and early summer and look sensational in the mixed or herbaceous border. The flowers are lightly scented and look wonderful when cut and placed in a vase.

  • Garden care: Deadhead after flowering. In early spring apply a top-dressing of a balanced slow release fertiliser around the base of the plant and mulch well with well rotted garden compost or manure. The older stems of tree peonies have a tendency to become brittle and snap so cut these back to the ground in autumn every two or three years.
