A Kelways collection of 3 fragrant peonies.

These are the largest grade of field grown peonies - and will flower next summer! Kelways are famous for the highest quality peonies which are far superior to supermarket pre-packs. Price includes delivery.

Contains one each of Sarah Bernhardt, Inspecteur Lavergne and Duchesse de Nemours.

Sarah Bernhardt: One of the best loved of all garden peonies. Large double flowers of apple blossom pink. The flowers are very sweetly perfumed and this peony is one of the best for cutting. Sarah Bernhardt is a taller variety of peony often growing to 95cm, so ideal for the back of the border. It may require staking. Flowers are freely produced often to the end of June so it is great for extending the flowering season. The Sarah Bernhardt peony was introduced in 1906 by the French breeder Monsieur Lemoine and named after Sarah Bernhardt, a French actress - some say the most famous actress the world has ever known. She had a famous coffin in which she often slept instead of a bed, as she reckoned it helped her understand her many tragic roles. Whilst performing in la Toscana in 1905 she jumped off a parapet and injured her knee which led to her leg being amputated. The saying "doing a Sarah Bernhardt" refers to having a melodramatic moment, a tribute to Sarah's extraordinary talent for tragic drama.One thing we do know for sure, is that Sarah's namesake, just like the icon herself, is a beauty of a peony and one of our most popular blooms!

Inspectaur Lavergne: (Doriat 1924) Globular flowers which are an intense crimson red with some frilled central petals. This classic peony has very long straight stems which gives excellent cutting qualities, the blooms lasting a long time in water. Fragrant and free flowering. Height approx 85cms.

Duchesse de Nemours: (Calot 1856) One of the oldest peonies, and certainly the most famous double white peony.  A full bloom with incurving petals of pure white that are lemony green at the base. Free flowering and highly scented. One of the earlier flowering cultivars so an excellent choice for prolonging the flowering season. This is a shorter variety growing to approx 85cm making it a great choice for a windy garden. A popular garden variety that will never fail to deliver.

"Purchased 3 x Peonies. Arrived promptly and well packaged in individual bags in a larger box. Each plant had an information sticker and picture of the expected flower so couldn't go wrong really Plants were bare rooted with the 3 - 5 eyes as promised, looked just as they should. Very pleased. Thank you for your prompt service, I'll let you know when they start to grow and flower"

At Kelways, we are confident that the products we supply are of a high standard and quality. All our plants with a hardiness rating of H4 and above are guaranteed for 12 months from the date of delivery, with the exception of bedding plants, annuals, seeds and bulbs. We pride ourselves in selecting the best plants available and will never knowingly send anything of substandard quality. If for any reason you are unhappy with your purchase, please contact us via email at sales@kelways.co.uk and we will do all we can to rectify the situation. If we require any plants to be returned to us where we agree that the reason for return is our fault, we will arrange for our couriers to collect them from you at our expense. For instances where the customer may have changed their mind or made a mistake in their order, please just contact us and we will do all we can to help. Please do bear in mind, however, that plants by their very nature, are perishable goods, and as such will need certain care in handling and any returns would need to be processed in a timely manner. Occasionally, some plants may not be available right away, and similarly, we may, at our discretion, not send certain plants if we feel they are not of a suitable standard or quality. In these instances, there may be a slight delay in sending your order, but we will always endeavour to contact you if we believe there may be a delay in dispatch. Some plants may be ordered in advance of their availability period (i.e. bare root peonies or bulbs). For any product where this applies, you will be shown the month for when these products will be delivered. None of the above affects your statutory rights as a consumer.

UK NATIONWIDE DELIVERY We aim to ship within 3-5 working days or receiving your order. Items that we have specially sourced for you may take longer and in these cases we usually suggest upto 14 days before shipping. 

LOCAL HOME DELIVERY We offer free local home delivery within a 7 mile radius of Langport. All we ask is that if at all possible you make sure your order is a minimum value of £20. We are not being insistent on this; it just helps us out a little more. Maybe speak to your neighbours and see if they would like to order anything as well. That will always help.

CLICK & COLLECT Please be aware that in order to offer the widest selection of plants possible, we work with a number of local specialist nurseries. Not all plants offered through the website will necessarily be immediately available in the garden centre. Therefore please still allow 3-5 working days for your order to be ready.
