Precious Lotus tree peony pair
Two seed grown tree peonies for those gardens who wish to embrace the diversity of the genus Paeonia. Since these plants are not clones like others we offer, no two will be alike in color shade and flower form. However, since these plants are 3-4 years old, we have seen them bloom and can guarantee that the colors will be accurate. This duo consists of a White Lotus and Light Pink Lotus. These peonies are desirable for several reasons; shimmering, densely fragrant flowers form vigorous, tall growing plants with finely cut foliage. In our garden they have proven to be tolerant of drought and moderate shade. These two tree peonies will reach 5' tall and wide at maturity.
If you are looking to seduce, or be seduced, this is the tree peony pairing for you. These seed grown plants are crosses of the Chinese Paeonia rockii and Japanese tree peonies. They are one-of-a-kind, seed grown plants,and there is some variability in flower form and color. These plants have all bloomed and are a shade of mid-to-dark pink with deep maroon flares at the base of the petals. Flower forms are all open, either single or light semi-double.
