Paeonia Lactiflora 'Shirley Temple'

Regular price £12.99


Bring some glamour to your garden with the Peony Shirley Temple! Its large, rose-shaped blooms in a pale blush pink make for a stunning display, eventually fading to a neutral white shade. It's also a treat for your senses, as this plant has a beautiful floral scent to it. While the 'Shirley Temple' is later flowering than many peonies, it's definitely a case of good things come to those who wait.

Yes, this plant is indeed named after the late American child star from the 1940s! Its blooms make great cut-flowers for you to snip off and enjoy inside your home. And outside, the Peony Shirley Temple will attract butterflies to your garden.

The Peony has few care needs and is a reliable plant, suited to beginners. Simply position somewhere it can get part sun and shade, and keep its soil well-drained. Remember, it will die down naturally in late summer, but re-emerge full of life come the spring.

Please note, this plant will arrive un-bloomed, so expect to find a supportive stick within a nursery pot. That way, you get to witness the joy of this plant growing up from its infancy to producing magnificent flowers.

    In short, if anything isn't right with your order we'll sort it. 

    Your plants have not only been packaged by humans (we’d like to find a robot that could beat our packaging skills) but by our in-house team of plant lovers who have lovingly prepared your order.

    If you’re not happy with your plants, let us know within 30 days, by contacting us via live chat, email or phone and a friendly member of our team will do their absolute best to rectify anything that's gone wrong.

    It's not just the plants that we care about though, we're pretty proud of our market leading (sustainable) packaging too. We’ve created a family of transport boxes with handles and where possible use our 'anti-roll' device which prevents the plant from travelling around should the box be inadvertently tipped upside down during transit.

    Things occasionally go wrong, but we'd like to assure you we're on hand help!
