Few flowers can compete with the glamour of tree peonies. They have long been coveted by gardeners and designer florists alike, for their elegance, sheer impact and fabulous colours and just a few of these enormous, papery blooms in a bouquet add instant cachet.
They seem so unbelievably flamboyant it’s hard to imagine they would grow here in Britain. Wrong! Tree Peonies are surprisingly easy to grow. They originated in China circa 2000 years ago but have since been bred to grow in Japan – in areas not dissimilar to our own UK climate.
They will survive in harsh extremes of temperature but to get the very best out of them – choose a sunny, well drained area with a neutral / slightly acid soil – main thing to remember – don’t plant them in boggy areas. Buy your Tree Peonies online for UK delivery!
