Paeonia ludlowii

Paeonia

Tree Peony

These shrubby undemanding Paeonias combine winning foliage with ultra-chic flowers. Prospering in average garden soil that's either acidic or alkaline, but not overly wet, they enjoy a periodic pruning and protection from spring frost.

Paeonia ludlowii full sun  partial shade

This long-lived woody Peony offers a reliable spring showing of big saucer-shaped golden yellow flowers with sumptuous chiffon-style petals and decorative fringe-like stamens. Sturdy upright stems produce magnificent large green deciduous leaves, defined by deeply carved leaflets, contrasting pink petioles and sunshine-colored autumn shades. Easily grown, hardy and relatively pest free, Paeonia ludlowii promises an imposing stance whether planted as a hedge or exquisite specimen, along walls and pathways or in mixed borders. Tibetan Tree Peony wards off deer, appreciates shelter from the wind, prefers well-drained soil and requires minimal pruning.

Blooms May-June

Size: 7' 0"–8' 0" high x 2' 0"–2-1/2' wide; hardy to zone 5.

Sterling Spring blooming shrubs, plus head-turning Perennials.

Here’s the tall and short of it…

Sterling spring blooming shrubs, all dressed in classy green leaves and crisp white flowers. Viburnum plicatum ‘Summer Snowflake’ is the largest of our featured shrubs, fashioning graceful somewhat horizontal branches adorned with snowy lace caps. Cultivated since 1868, well-loved Spiraea x vanhouttei makes a shapely low maintenance addition to sunny mixed borders, while smaller-statured Deutzia gracilis ‘Nikko' offers a galaxy of dainty white blooms perfect for the rockery, nestled along steps or in a container.

Head turning Perennials

Nearly 65” of rain coupled with chilly spring days spawned a remarkable surge of lush foliar growth, plus spectacular long-lasting flowers in our nursery & garden this year. Spring is always such an exciting time as we watch the multitude of leaves, buds and blooms that seemingly unfurl over night plus the numerous new shoots stretching skyward. Dicentra ‘Gold Heart’s delicate golden foliage glows in dappled shady niches, while the dark leaves of Eupatorium ‘Chocolate’, Astrantia ‘Moulin Rouge's exquisite domes, and the richly colored Sedum ‘Jose Aubergine’ promise to turn more than a few heads in your garden. Perhaps you could let Campanula ‘Blue Waterfall’ cascade down your garden steps, or brighten up a sunny bed with Geum ‘Prinses Juliana’. We hope you’ll make room for a few of these shrubs & perennials. Our extensive display borders which surround the nursery are now open through Colombus Day weekend. Our first guided Saturday Stroll is June 24th., followed by July 15th & 29th. We hope you’ll come visit us this summer.
