Description

Introducing a veritable vision of colourthis mix of wonderful peony cultivars will transform your late spring and early summer garden. A perfect blend of pinks, mauves, reds and white, this is a captivating combination, and a feast for the eyes. Each 'Colourburst' Peony collection contains:

1 x Peony 'Sarah Bernhardt'
1 x Peony 'Shirley Temple'
 1 x Peony 'Red Sarah Bernhardt'
 1 x Peony 'Purple Spider'

Peony 'Sarah Bernhardt' produces huge, pale pink and puffy clusters of petals, to form a soft ball of colour! Arguably the most dramatic of the four varieties in this collection, 

Peony 'Shirley Temple' is a totally charming double flowerbright white that takes on pink tinges as the sun gently strokes its petals. Golden yellow stamens in the centre of the flower enhance the look. Oh, and she also has a delicate fragrance, too!

Peony 'Red Sarah Bernhardt' is, simply, a red version of 'Sarah'! Growing to around 90cm in height, it produces masses of lightly scented, double flowers. Some 15-20cm across, they comprise dark, pinkish-purple petals, tinged with red.

Peony 'Purple Spider' carries large, long-lasting flowers, in shades of rich, intense purple-pink. The ruffled double blooms will bring life and high-impact colour to any planting spaceand with hardly any fuss at all!

These peonies really do pack a punch in the border and, once established, will keep coming back, year after year. What's more, these cut-flower classics each have an outstanding vase life too, opening slowly from tight, rounded buds to reveal amazing blooms.
