Tree Peonies

Pre ordering opens June 1 for shipping/ delivery in October


Often described as
"A plant for the landscape, stately, with rare breathtaking flowers, simply fabulous."
Tree Peonies are woody perennial shrubs and do not die back to the ground in Winter. They bloom in early spring, before herbaceous peonies. Their woody structure supports gigantic 8"-12" flowers. Bees and other pollinators are highly attracted to the flowers. While they can take full sun, they thrive in dappled light and the blooms will last longer if they have some shade in the hot afternoon. Tree peonies provide structure to the garden, with deep green foliage in summer that turns bronze and purple in fall. Native to China and cultivated for millennia, they symbolize honour and wealth. Many Chinese medicines are derived from Peony roots. These deer-resistant plants thrive in zones 4-9. Tree peonies grow slowly, producing 1 to 6 inches of new woody growth each year. They require rich compost and well-drained soil.  Because they are woody and do not die back each year, it is very important to protect the tender bare branches from heavy snow.  Snow or freezing rain will easily break branches.  The ones listed here are of the subgroup Suffruticosa and at maturity (10 years) will be 3 ft to 5 ft tall depending on variety.
