Description

Few garden plants can have been so aptly named as this Paeonia 'Raspberry Sundae'. This is a so-called bomb-shaped lactiflora double peony, meaning that it has a central, raised mass of smaller petals. Colour-wise, 'Raspberry Sundae' has large, pale pink outer petals surrounding a collar of vanilla-hued petals. Then, these are topped by a mass of curly, pale pink petals. The extreme centre is slightly depressed with a few very narrow, tiny, pale-yellow petals. Altogether breathtaking!  

The blooms of Paeonia lactiflora 'Raspberry Sundae' (which is quite a rare variety), have a delightfully fruity fragrance, and are free-flowering. They are carried on tall, strong stems, and they will light up your garden in early summer. Along with its attractive, finely divided dark green foliage, the beautiful perennial Paeonia 'Raspberry Sundae' is perfect for the front or mid-way point in a border, either in full sun or part shade. By the way, this is an extremely good cultivar for cutting, too, but you’ll need a sturdy vase to support the large, heavy heads!

Useful information

    • Soak the Paeonia 'Raspberry Sundae' roots in water for 3-6 hours prior to planting

    • Plant your bare roots into temporary pots with a multipurpose compost in spring and grow-on in a sheltered spot outdoors

    • Choose a pot which comfortably fits the bare roots. Some have a noticeable crown which should be just below the soil surface with any top growth exposed. Some varieties are a length of root which should be planted lengthways and shallowly (1-2cm deep).

    • Plant out into borders or permanent containers in late spring or early summer once in full growth. Choose a position in sun or shade depending on the variety.
