Bowl of Beauty Peony

Unique Bicolor Peony!

Lush, full blooms feature carmine-pink outer petals with creamy, ivory-white centers—a striking color combination! Flowers are large and bowl shaped, each one reaches 5-7" across and sits atop strong 24-36" tall stems. Like its contemporaries, Bowl of Beauty has a classic peony fragrance and lures beneficial pollinators, such as butterflies and bees, to the landscape in early summer, which is a big benefit to your entire property. Plant this bush type perennial in groups mixed borders, in flower beds or cutting gardens for the greatest visual impact. The showy blooms make excellent cut-flower arrangements! Carefree growth habit—they only require a sunny spot with well-drained soil. Remove spent flower heads to maintain a neat appearance. Deer tend to avoid. Zones 3-8.

  • Growth Rate: Slow to moderate growth rate.
  • Pruning: Remove spent flowers after blooming. Cut foliage to the ground (and remove from the garden) in fall after frost
  • Size: 8-12 inches.
  • Comments: Flower is scented. Too much shade inhibits flowering. First season, few stems, few inches. Second season, double that of the first year. Third season: Mature growth and blooms. If blooms appear in the first season, remove to conserve energy. Winter dormancy needed. Ants are very attracted to the fragrance of the plant. They will not harm the plant nor are they needed for the blossoms to open. If the plants fail to bloom by their third season, the roots are probably too deep. Transplant in the fall as directed.
