Paeonia

Tree Peony

These shrubby undemanding Paeonias combine winning foliage with ultra-chic flowers. Prospering in average garden soil that's either acidic or alkaline, but not overly wet, they enjoy a periodic pruning and protection from spring frost.

This long-lived woody Peony offers a reliable spring showing of big saucer-shaped golden yellow flowers with sumptuous chiffon-style petals and decorative fringe-like stamens. Sturdy upright stems produce magnificent large green deciduous leaves, defined by deeply carved leaflets, contrasting pink petioles and sunshine-colored autumn shades. Easily grown, hardy and relatively pest-free, P. ludlowii promises an imposing stance whether planted as a hedge or exquisite specimen, along walls and pathways or in mixed borders. Tibetan Tree Peony wards off deer, welcomes shelter from the wind, prefers well-drained soil and requires minimal pruning.

Blooms May–June

Size: 7' 0" – 8' 0" high x 2' 0" – 2-1/2' wide.
