Glossy, ruby-red bowls with pink or red filaments, and golden anthers, are held over deeply cleft, glossy-green leaves. This is one of the most sumptuous and desirable of all of this group of choice plants as it will slowly spread, unlike most other species which only make a congested clump.
Sow at any time covering with compost or grit half an inch deep. Keep moist in a cold spot outside as peonies are very slow to germinate, sometimes taking up to two years to appear. Do not use artificial heat as this may simply kill them. As a rule they just make an underground root the first year, shoots appearing above ground in year two. Grow on seedlings in 3” pots and finally plant out in good garden soil. Never discard the seed tray until the seedlings appear.
