tree peony

Medium-sized, bushy, upright, slow growing deciduous shrub (H 1-2 m, W 1,5-2,5 m). Bark light brown, branches upright to open. Leaves with long petioles, deeply pinnately compound (15-25 cm), with a slightly serrate margin, smooth, at first dark red to pink-red, later dark green above, underneath light grey-green to blue-green. Flowers large, simple, cup-shaped (15-20 cm), pink to light pink, eventually with dark red spots at the base of the petioles. Flowering period: May. Needs deep, well-drained, moderately moist soils. Paeonia suffruticosa is also a general name for the tree (shrubby) peonies and their varieties.
  • These plants grow well in sun or in partial shade. Usually they tolerate more sun and heat if given enough moisture; in partial or light shade they need less moisture.

  • Decidious have woody stems (i. e. tree trunk and branches) and are also called woody plants or trees. Leaves are normally broad, soft and thin.

  • The plant develops new leaves or needles every spring, which dropp off in autumn. Herbaceous plants can die completely in above ground section and grow back in the spring.

  • Plant can in otherwise appropriate environment survive cold down to - 23 °C.

  • Porous or dry soils are normally light and loose, there is no stagnant water but relatively quickly flows in deeper layers; such ground are more airy and warmer, yet drier and usually contain less humus and for such undergrowth it is often to for drought to appear (e. g. rockgardens, walls, by paths and roads, on gravel, also on gravel surface in towns and close to buildings ...), plants of such undergrowth need well-drained soil, they tolerate drought but cannot tolerate constant moisture or even flooding.

  • Woody plant, normally branched at the ground level into several side stems, usually lacks of a dominant stem. Tree top can be of different shapes, dense or thin, symetric or uneven. Most shrubs reach a height of 1 to 2 metres, but some can grow much higher (up to 8 m); some can grow into very low or carpet-like forms.

  • Among described plants in this category we marked those, which are particulary resistant (to various environmental conditions), do not require much maintanance and thereby suitable fot planting in public areas.
