$ 149.00
Notable characteristics:  Unique in form, this tree peony has been pruned and trained over a 6 year period to a tall singular woody trunk, with a shaped multi-branched globe form on top. This is a one-of-a-kind, 6 year old plant, 26" tall without the foliage. Estimate height when in leaf and flower this season is 32" tall. This plant has flower buds formed for this coming spring.

Growth habit and size at maturity (10 years old): Upright, vigorous grower, flowers held well above the foliage. Grows to about 42" tall and 30" wide. Topiary form tree peonies do need to be pruned, likely just once a  year,  so additional branches which sprout at the base are removed to keep the form. Its a simple procedure which we will explain in instructions with your plant.

Flower form and size: These silky flowers open to 7-8" in size. White petals reveal a striking dark red flare and golden stamens for a rich contrast in the center of the bloom.

Flower fragrance: Sweet, spicy fragrance.

Bloom time: Early-season blooming, flowers in our USDA zone 6a garden in the second week of May.

Zone hardiness: Proven is USDA zones 4-9.

Plant size: 6 year old tree peony pruned to a topiary form with thick tree-like trunk, with multiple top branches and a very well developed root system. This size plant has many flower buds set for next spring.
