Double-flowered peony 'London' pink - Bare rooted - Hardy plant

Paeonia 'London'
A little pizazz
A peony that stays small? That's the peony 'London' (Paeonia). The double-flowered peony grows compactly. Perfect as a potted plant! The pink peonies also brighten up any border. You will receive the peonies bare-rooted in environmentally friendly sugar cane sacking. The roots are shipped fresh from the ground. They are already one year old. This boosts their strength and accelerates their growth. Plants grown from bare-root stock also adapt to their new environment more easily. Bare-root stock plants grow when it becomes warmer. These are winter-hardy perennials, so they return every year. The flowers bloom in the spring.
Peonies grow best in the sun. Keep the soil around the roots moist. But it should never be soaking wet.

Peonies grow well outdoors in rich, loose soil. Improve poor garden soil by mixing in compost and granulated cow manure. Place the root ball of the Paeonia at the correct depth in the planting hole. The top of the root ball should be just one centimetre below ground level. Be sure you do not plant it too deeply! Fill the planting hole with soil, press down firmly and immediately water after planting. The peony ‘London’ prefers a sunny or semi-shaded place.

Peony ‘London’ in the border

The peony is an excellent perennial, a must for any border. The large flowers look even more astonishing when alongside other summer flowers like larkspur (Delphinium 'magic Fountains', lupines (Lupina 'The Governor') or Wisteria, for lots of colour early in summer. Plant colourful crown vetch (Coronilla varia) which has similar colours between these peonies for a stunningly beautiful colour effect. You will be surprised by the result!


Peony ‘London’ (Paeonia) is an easy to grow perennial that demands very little maintenance, but take care that the soil around the roots does not dry out. To stimulate flowering, regularly cut the faded flower stems. The peony has large fleshy roots. Therefore once established avoid moving them, having said that if you do want to move them, early October is the best time to tackle it.

Paeonia ‘London’ in winter

In autumn, the stems will die off above ground. Cover the plants in winter with a mulch of fallen leaves. In spring clean the plant by removing all withered stems and leaves. Very soon, you will see new shoots start to appear above ground.


Peonies are classic garden plants, and no flower border will be complete without them. Peony 'London' is a fantastic looking flower with such an appealing fragrance. The flowers are a lovely fluffy fuchsia pink. The longer the peonies remain in the same location, the richer they will bloom.
