Superb, large, deep-rose blooms open like Meconopsis flowers, slowly flattening with age and displaying their centres as a golden boss of anthers, and as a bonus are perfumed like lily-of-the-valley. The stems of this rare Siberian species are clad in attractive leaves which are much divided with very narrow segments.
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.
