Tree peony, Pink Lotus #83, 6-7 year old plant
Multiple rows of petals in a light to mid-pink, accented with bright gold. This fast growing, hardy cultivar is a seed grown cross of a Chinese rockii peony and a Japanese tree peony. The resulting plant is very vigorous, unique, one-of-a-kind tree peony. Highly recommended, and easy to grow.
Growth habit and size at maturity (10 years old): Upright and slightly spreading, grows to 4.5' tall and 4' wide.
Flower form and size: Semi-double blossoms, 7-8".
Flower fragrance: Light, sweet.
Bloom time: Early, mid-season tree peony, blooms in our USDA zone 6a garden in the first week of mid-May.
Zone hardiness: Proven in USDA zones 4-9.
Plant size: This 6-7 year old tree peony has 6 woody stems, is 3.5 ft. tall now with a lot of new growth. Well developed root system, potted up into a 7 gallon container. Most buds were removed this year so it would concentrate on growth. This gives the plant more energy for transplant and making buds for spring 2021.
Nursery availability: SPRING 2020
