The tree peony is a deciduous shrub originating from China where it is known as Moutan. Distinct from the more common herbaceous peony that dies back in winter, the Tree Peony is a larger version that retains a woody stem or bark throughout the winter. As a result, tree peonies grow into a good size shrub, capable of reaching 1.5 metres high and wide.

Prized for their beautiful flowers, tree peonies (Paeonia Suffruticosa) are best planted in full sun although they will tolerate shade. Once established and happy in their environment, tree peonies can live to well over 50 years.

Our tree peonies are Spring blooming plants and continue to flower into early summer. Tree peony blooms make excellent cut flowers.

Caring for your tree peony – Despite their extremely polished good looks, tree peonies are very low maintenance and easy to care for. It is best to plant them in full sun although they will tolerate light shade. Allow them plenty of room to grow in size (don’t plant too close to neighbouring shrubs). It is best not to cut back the wooden stem in autumn. Prune in summer only if the shape needs to be modified. Feed regularly, especially during the flowering season.
