PAEONIA DELAVAYI ANGUSTILOBA
This naturally occurring hybrid between the two forms of Paeonia delavayi var. angustiloba is nowadays correctly called: Paeonia delavayi var. angustiloba f. trollioides X Paeonia delavayi var. angustiloba f. angustiloba! Gosh....What a mouthful! As it is a hybrid it grows more vigorously than its parents making a beautiful middle sized shrub with dark orange flowers, the petals usually having a narrow yellow margin.
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.
Packet Content:5 very large seeds (Approx)
