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.

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.

Ornamental Grasses: Autumnal Garden Stars, Plant for Outstanding October Oomph!

Celebrated headliners of the late show!

Offering superb versatility, ornamental grasses become poetry in motion on gusty days. They are best situated so their fluid shimmering inflorescences, bathed in amber, sable or smoky rose and purple shades, are backlit and set aglow by the afternoon sunlight. Most look fantastic in fresh or dried arrangements, while others produce welcome seed heads that birds adore. Be sure to browse our online selections of ornamental grasses.
