Paeonia Tree (Tree Peony) suffruticosa ‘Taiyo’

Tree Peony, ‘Taiyo’ has very large semi-double flowers with bright, royal ruby-red petals that are often curled. The vigorous and good sized plants also have divided and lobed leaves. Early bloom time.

Paeonia suffruticosa, or Tree Peonies, are loved by everyone who has ever seen them in bloom and they have been prized and carefully cultivated in the Far East for centuries. A deciduous shrub, not a tree, the Tree Peony has woody stems. A mature shrub produces many huge, long-lasting, silken blooms which delight the eye. The showy flowers are 6-10″ across growing on woody stems. The tree is slow growing and best in the partial shade since the flowers tend to fade in full sun. With flowers two to three times as large as regular peonies, the tree peonies also form small “trees”, and in most climates don’t die down to the ground each winter like their herbaceous cousins. Medium green foliage is deeply divided into oval to lance-shaped leaflets and remains attractive throughout the growing season.

Planting/Care Instructions +

Planting Instructions: May be planted in any well-drained soil. Dig a hole large enough to encompass the roots without bending or circling. Set the plant in the hole so the graft (the area where the roots meet the crown) is about 1" below the soil surface. Cover with soil to the original soil surface and water thoroughly. Tolerant of summer heat. Add compost as needed before planting. Larger shrubs appreciate some shelter from strong winds. This Tree Peony will bloom one or two years after planting. After the plant has blossomed, remove the seeds to promote size of blooms for the following year.

Pests or Diseases: Tree peonies are considered to be relatively pest free. Ants on peony buds are common and totally harmless.
