Tree Peonies

Our First Shipment

In white, red, yellow, maroon and pink, these blooms are larger than garden peonies and put on quite a show in mid to late May. Unlike garden peonies, tree peonies are small shrubs, so they do not require staking.

They will average around 3 foot tall although given time, they can grow larger. These plants are easy to grow, hard to find, and simply beautiful in bloom and out!
