Description

Peony 'Bowl of Beauty' will set your garden ablaze with colour, and provide a delightful fragrance into the bargain. Superb as it opens, the delicate bloom’s larger base petals seem to form a chalice for the abundance of small bright yellow petals that crowd together at the centre. Once fully open the chalice changes to a serving platter for the central display!

Attractive to bees and butterflies, deer resistant, and above all, a vibrant and colourful bloom, 'Bowl of Beauty' is a must in your late spring to midsummer garden. Planted in the full sun, Peony 'Bowl of Beauty' can grow to 70cm (or 2 feet) tall.

Useful information

    • Soak your Paeonia 'Bowl of Beauty' 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.

    • 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.
