Paeonia lactiflora ‘Alertie’ (Peony ‘Alertie’) is a lovely fragrant mid-season flowering herbaceous Peony Plant.

With lovely colour, it is a beautiful peony with soft pink double flowers with a darker centre on shorter stemmed, mid-green foliage. It will thrive in any fertile, moist, well drained soil in full sun or partial shade, reaching a height of around 75cm and spread of around 50cms. 

Very easy to grow, and great for cutting too, if you wish to add a touch of springtime romance to your garden, look no further than this sweet-smelling peony.

For the cutting garden, it is perfect for special occasions, the soft pink petals fade to white with pink blushing. This floriferous, often overlooked beauty is being used by more and more professional cut-flower growers.

Herbaceous Peonies will last a lifetime in your garden providing late spring displays of show-stopping ruffled blooms each year with little effort. Plant them into the middle of herbaceous borders, where they will add structure and of course, rich colours.

Soemthing you may not have known about peonies is that the petals are edible, add to salads or float on punch for an opulent treat. They can also be cooked slightly and sweetened for a treat. Peony water was also once considered a delicacy - there are some amazing recipes around online to try.
