Red Tree Peony

Regular price $75.00 Sale

Paeonia suffruticosa 'Taiyo' or 'Red Tree'

Deer are a major pest in many of our urban forests, but they find tree peonies unpalatable. 'King of the Garden' is the title many horticulturists reserve for the tree peony, while to others these plants are merely the garden's 'aristocrats'.

Older specimens of any of the tree peonies produce fifty to two hundred blooms per plant and the attractive foliage is definitely an asset to the garden landscape.
