Buy Paeonia White tree peony / tree paeony: Enormous white flowers in late spring

This shrub is deciduous so it will lose all its leaves in autumn, then fresh new foliage appears again each spring.

  • Position: full sun or partial shade
  • Soil: fertile, moisture-retentive yet well-drained
  • Rate of growth: vigorous
  • Flowering period: April to May
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    Gorgeous white, bowl-shaped flowers, each with a decorative boss of stamens, top the leafy stems in late spring. It makes a wonderful addition to the woodland garden or partially shaded border, but it will also flourish in full sun provided it does not get too dry.

    This tree paeonia is between 1 and 2 years old. It has been field grown and was immediately potted up in late autumn into a 2 litre pot. It may not have a well developed root system just yet (hence we describe them as bareroot), so you should not worry if the soil falls away when planting out.

  • Garden care: Protect from cold winds and early morning sun. Support the branches of young shrubs with canes to prevent the massive flowerheads from being battered by rain. Tree peonies are hungry feeders, so ensure that container-grown specimens receive a top-dressing of a slow-release fertiliser in spring. In the border apply a top-dressing of a balanced, slow-release fertiliser around the base of the plant in early spring and mulch with well-rotted garden compost or manure. The older stems of tree peonies have a tendency to become brittle and snap, so cut these back to the ground in autumn every two or three years.
