Huge, purple red, semi double flowers to 20cm across with prominent, gold stamens. Tree Peony ‘Shimadaijin is a late flowering, rare variety.
Tree Peonies bring imperial splendour to your garden. They also make a wonderful cut flower.
Tree Peonies look exotic and temperamental, and yet they are pretty hardy, and grow well in Cool to Temperate Australian gardens.
Tree Peony ‘Alice Harding’ should flower in the first year.
Tree Peonies need cold winters for best flowers. We recommend you treat your Tree Peonies a bit like hungry teenage boys and feed them well! Water to establish, then only if rainfall is low. Dry tolerant once established. Tree Peonies differ from Herbaceous Peonies in that they have a woody base, which magically transforms with the warmth of spring.
