Description

Set your early-summer garden aglow with the warm, soft, peachy and cream tones of Peony 'Callie's Memory'. Mellow colouring from the warmer side of the spectrum is just what’s needed for contrast if your garden has plenty of blues and purples. Take a close look and you’ll see that it’s not just a simple soft apricot bloom, this amazing intersectional (Itoh) peony has raspberry-ripple streaks on the petals for added detail!

Grow this bushy perennial in large patio pots or borders and enjoy as it returns every year with another fabulous flurry of flowers. Popular as a cut flower not only for its eye-catching detail and generous flower size, but also for its sweet and delicate fragrance.

You can’t go wrong with Itoh Paeonia 'Callie's Memory'. It is at its best in late spring and early summer, producing semi-double flowers of stunning cream flowers, with maroon flares and picotee edges. Its finely divided green foliage has reddish tinges in spring and autumn, all held on a sturdy framework of branches. No staking is required. Any fertile, free-draining soil in full sun or part shade will do, ideally in a fairly sheltered position.
