Flounces of pink

Landscape (UK) - - In the Garden -

The pe­ony is ex­cep­tion­ally long-lived and can sur­vive for up to 50 years in favourable con­di­tions. It comes into flower in late spring, with enor­mous blousy blooms in pink, yel­low, white or scar­let. To show well, pe­onies should be planted in well-drained soil and full sun­light. The heads are so heavy and op­u­lent that they will often bow the stem and ben­e­fit by be­ing sup­ported with stakes. When cut, they can last for up to 10 days, and need only a sim­ple ar­range­ment, match­ing well with large daisies and light um­bel­lif­ers.
