Lemon Yellow Tree Paeonia

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 distinctive fine textured Tree Paeonia achieves four-season panache. Cup-shaped, fragrant and crimpled, the swank 2 to 3 in. lemon-yellow flowers dress a lush lacy looking foundation. The large deciduous light green leaves are deeply segmented, beaming bright yellow fall colors, while orange-red seed pods heighten late season intrigue and thickened stalks spark arresting winter architecture. Seriously endangered in China due to over-collecting for medicinal purposes, Paeonia delavayi var. lutea makes a superb specimen in an herbaceous border where it favors good drainage and dappled light.

Blooms May–June

Size: 6' 0"–8' 0" high x 4' 0"–5' 0" wide; hardy to zone 6.

Our featured plant: Hydrangea quercifolia 'Sikes Dwarf'

Perennials that cool down a hot summer day, refreshing foliage, soothing blooms, last chance to take advantage of our summer sale!

Bring sparkling beauty to your August plantings

Perhaps you’re looking for some soothing floral or foliar accents on a hot summer day! We’ve found that snowy white, clear pink, pale yellow and deep blue blooms coupled with silver, bluish green or emerald-toned leaves become refreshing counterpoints to warmer-hued flowers. They offer a place where your eye can rest, much like cleansing your palette when tasting wine. These shades meld the spicy-colored flowers of many Achillea, Crocosmia, Dahlia, Geum, Helenium, Kniphofia, Rudbeckia and Salvia.

Our next guided Saturday Strolls is August 19th., followed by September 16th & October 7th. We hope you’ll come visit us this summer.
