Paeonia lactiflora 'Dr. Alexander Fleming'
A popular variety of Peony with an extended flowering period thanks to the many side buds it produces on its flowering stems. The attractive, divided foliage shoots up in spring, providing an elegant backdrop for the showy, large, rose-pink, double flowers. The fragrant blooms are super as cut flowers. Attractive to garden pollinators.
Keep well watered until firmly established, feed with a good liquid fertiliser every two weeks in the flowering season. Flower stems may need staking.
Soak plant thoroughly in its pot before planting, dig hole large enough to comfortably accommodate the root ball. Ensure the surrounding soil and the top of the root ball are at the same level. Fill around the root ball with soil mixed with good planting compost and a suitable fertiliser. Firm well and water generously.
