Paeonia Shirley Temple 3L Potted Perennial

  • Catalogue Code 5130-5031
  • Pack Contents: 1x 3L Potted Shrub
  • bold blooms
  • Effective wind break to nearby tender crops
  • Colour-changing through the season

Fragrant and bold peony variety with lots of blush-pink blossoms giving off the sweetest of flower scent. Strong, fresh stems emerge from the soil in spring each year, coming into bud in late spring then into flower. Blooms start off pink and turn a soft ivory white in mid-summer.

Shirley Temple gets more and more flowers as it establishes over the years. Fresh, bold and lush leaves complement the fragrant blooms that add drama to your perennial border

Making a great cut flower you can rely on Shirley Temple to give you evocative vase displays, saving you money on not having to spend large amounts on bunches of flowers from the florists.

We recommend you cut back peonies to ground level after summer. Keep the leaves intact over the summer as they provide effective wind protection to nearby tender crops. Peonies like Shirley Temple improve like a fine wine over the years. They are really easy to split in autumn to increase your plant numbers. Why not offer a section or two to gardening neighbours?

    Perennial plants are the mainstay of the flower garden; many will flower all summer, becoming dormant in autumn to reappear in spring. Perennials tend to be non-fussy plants and are easy to look after - they just need the old stems cutting back in late autumn, which helps to promote new stems and vigorous growth the following spring, getting bigger and better every year!
