Paeonia suffruticosa 'Renkaku', Japanese Tree Peony
Japanese tree peonies are quite the statement for a landscape. They are known for their large blooms, loaded with petals. Although they only last a few weeks, the show is so tremendous, it is worth making a spot in the garden. Tree peonies are woody plants with stems that stay alive but dormant above the ground over winter. The flowers come in a rainbow of many fantastic colours. 'Renkaku' (means flight of cranes) has large semi-double blooms in white with gold centres. Plants may reach 48"/120cm. Best with relief from the intense afternoon sun.
Please note: This picture shows what the plant may look like when more mature. At this time our plants may not look like this.
