Seasonal Favourite


The stem whose return sets hearts aflutter throughout May and June
May - a month which welcomes an abundance of flowers, but there is one stem whose return truly sets hearts aflutter. From late April the peony, celebrated for it’s frothy, layered petals begins to make its highly anticipated appearance. Show-stopping in mono-floral bouquets or nestled amongst bodacious urn arrangements - whichever guise the flower takes it is likely to steal the spotlight! Fans of the pom-pom bloom rejoice - there are numerous varieties to marvel, from single-petaled specimens to triple-decker darlings. Meet just some of our favourites...

Bowl of Cream

Aptly named ‘Bowl of Cream’ are double-petaled wonders. Bridal white and lightly fragrant these large-headed peonies look gloriously cloud-like en masse or steal the show in a seasonal display.

Coral Charm

A semi-double-petaled variety - with a magical quality. Beginning a vibrant shade of salmon pink, the Coral Charm peony goes on a wonderful colour journey, turning a soft-peach shade and finishing in a pale yellow. Mid-transformation you may spot an enchanting psychedelic effect!

Dr. Alexander Fleming Peonies

This outstanding variety is characterized by its large, milkshake-pink head of frothy petals and completely irresistible, fragrance. Two to three shades darker than its close counterpart, Sarah Bernhardt, they create the perfect pairing. The keen-eyed among you will recognize that this beguiling variety was uniquely named after the Scottish microbiologist who discovered Penicillin.
