Paeonia lactiflora 'Candy Stripe' | Peony
A fragrant Peony plant sporting pale pink blooms marbled with pink
Arguably one of the most beautiful Peony plants to have ever graced a garden, Paeonia lactiflora 'Candy Stripe' will form delightful blush-pink flowers that are adorned by deep pink markings across each petal. Although the full, silky flowers of this Peony plant are reminiscent of the classic English garden, their bold pairing of light and dark shades sets a fun, modern feel. 'Candy Stripe' can live for many decades, and will only become better over time; and as such, makes the perfect first addition to your outdoor area. This variety will look as stunning indoors as it will outdoors, so why not use some of its flowers to fill a vase?

About your PlantOur Peony plants are lovingly grown by our trusted nursery, based in England. Each flourishing plant will be dispatched directly to your home.
Please note, your potted plant may not display flowers as soon as it arrives. However, the 'flowering period' box (detailed above), indicates when you can expect flowers to form. Many of our herbaceous perennials also die back in winter, so will have little growth in spring, but grow quickly once sunlight hours improve.
PackagingSustainability is one of our priorities, and as such, our plants are delivered in environmentally friendly packaging. Aside from being recyclable, they will keep them nice and secure on their journey.
Please see our below guidance on your perennial or alpine's care:
Watering: During your perennial or alpine's first growing season, you should provide them with frequent waterings. Try to also avoid wetting the foliage to reduce the risk of disease.
Deadheading: To promote a long flowering period, you should deadhead any flowers that appear spent. Simply rescind each flower at their base, taking care to not cut other parts of the plant.
Dividing: To really flourish, your perennials can be divided every three to four years. They can be divided when they begin to show less flowers, or appear less healthy in the middle. Make sure to only do so when they aren't currently flowering.Click Here To Read More
