A magnificent herbaceous peony, that puts on showy display from late spring to early summer with its goblet-shaped flowers. These form at the ends of the sturdy, upright stems and are an incredible shade of rich coral, which fades as the flower ages to a pale lemon.

- Garden care: Deadhead after flowering. In early spring apply a top-dressing of a balanced slow release fertiliser around the base of the plant and mulch well with well rotted garden compost or manure.
