Ideal for cutting.These incredible new intersectional varieties are the result of crosses between tree and herbaceous types, and have inherited the best qualities of both. They have the attractive dissected foliage of the tree peony but die back in autumn, and are more compact and bushy than traditional herbaceous types. They’re very hardy and boast huge flowers up to 25cm in diameter (perhaps 30 to 50 on a mature plant), supported on strong stems that hold the flowers upright even after heavy rain and make them ideal for cutting. The first successful crosses were made by Toichi Itoh in 1948, and they’re a must for peony connoisseurs! Culture: Full growing instructions included. Average Growing Height: 51-60CM.

Tree variety.The tree peony, Paeonia suffruticosa, was originally developed by the Chinese over a thousand years ago, and then further developed by the Japanese. The first specimens were introduced into Britian in the 18th century, and more were collected between 1843 and 1862 by the Victorian botanist Robert Fortune. Unlike their herbaceous cousins, they do not die down each autumn, but instead grow into large shrubs, and they boast beautifully dissected foliage and flowers that are so large and layered that they almost don’t seem quite real. Paeonia plants are a traditional mainstay of the English cottage garden border, their voluptuous blooms evocative of another era. They’re hardy, very easy to grow, relatively drought-tolerant and will put on an annual performance for decades to come. Ideal for cutting, they come in an awe-inspiring range of shapes and colours.
