Peony - PlantPaeonia
Mixed Peonies (Paeonia Hybriden) are a classic garden plant that should not be missing in your flower border. Their large, thick, double flowers smell wonderful. Our mixed peonies are white, pink and red in colour. These robust, popular plants flower in greater profusion every year, producing large double blooms with a delightful scent. They can remain in the same area of your garden every year. The ancient Greeks named the peony after Paeon, the physician of the Greek gods. In Chinese culture the peony is called the Emperor Flower.Show more
Planting and flowering details
Show morePeonies grow best in the ground. Prepare a suitable hole in loose, nutritious soil, enriched with compost or leaf mould. Plant the root ball at the appropriate depth in the hole. The top of the root ball should be just one cm below ground level. Be careful not to plant too deep! Fill the hole with soil and press firmly. Water immediately after planting. Peonies blossom and grow well in an area with complete sunshine. The best planting time is from September to October.
Peonies look great in the borderPeonies will add a special touch to your border. These large, double flowers are even more beautiful next to other flowers. You can combine your Mixed Peonies early in the summer with Delphinium 'Magic Fountains', lupine Lupinus 'The Governor' or Wisteria.
Show moreMixed Peonies are easy-to-grow plants that require minimal maintenance. Be sure to prevent the soil around the roots from drying out. Cut off its faded flower stems in order to encourage a good growth. In the autumn, the stems above the ground can weaken and dieback so cover the plants in winter with a layer of fallen leaves. In spring, cut off all of their leaves. Soon there will be some new shoots growing above the ground. Since Peonies have long, fleshy roots, we recommend moving this perennial around as little as possible.

It is best to pick the flowers early in the morning. Remove its bottom leaves and place the stems directly into a vase full of lukewarm water with flower food. Because of the long stems, Peonies are very suitable for putting in oasis.
