Supplier Spotlight - Arc Prints

Peony PrintArc Prints publish an eclectic collection of classical and traditional prints based on 17th-19th century engravings featuring architecture, natural history, interiors, artefacts and other decorative subjects. This botanical print from a selection in our house gift shop perfectly illustrates the beauty of the peony, and would make the perfect addition to any room.

The peony has for centuries featured in Chinese artwork. We have a beautiful example on the China Landing in the house of a pair of Chinese blue and white saucer dishes dating from the Kangxi period (1661-1722) which are painted with peonies and scrolling foliage.

If you would like to add peonies to your garden they are easy to grow, preferring to be planted and left alone. Their flouncy blooms come in a myriad of colours and shapes, their large, often double flowers in whites, pinks and reds add an element of romance and glamour to any garden. They also make excellent cut flowers and often feature in the summer flower arrangements here at Castle Howard as well as in our annual flower festival from 29 June to 2 July

The garden centre stocks a number of different cultivars of both herbaceous and tree peonies. You can also discover more varieties by taking a stroll in our walled garden, where our head gardener and his team are working on planting even more varieties ready for next season.
