Red-Coral Lotus Tree Peony, #D-18
Notable characteristics: This peony is the result of a cross between the Chinese tree peony Paeonia rockii and a Japanese tree peony. The resulting cross is a very vigorous, unique, one-of-a-kind tree peony. Highly recommended, and easy to grow, this seed grown plant flowered very well this spring. This well established woody plant would be the highlight of the spring garden. After the bloom is over, the foliage is very distinct and finely cut.
