About this book

It has taken nearly 40 years to gather all the information for this book. An illustrated guide to one of the most glamorous, long-lived and easy-to-grow garden plants, this personal selection of more than 350 exquisite peonies – herbaceous, intersectional and tree peonies – with close-up photographs of each beautiful plant showing flower colour, shape and form together with precise, detailed description. Practical advice on planting, siting, and caring for peonies, according to type, as well as dividing, propagating and moving plants. It also includes planting combinations from my gardens showing how to combine peonies with other perennials over the flowering season, plus the best peonies for cutting, for fragrance, for colour, for small gardens and for shade.
