Paeonia suffruticosa (Tree Peony)
Paeonia suffruticosa (Tree Peony) are deciduous subshrubs with large, gorgeous peony blooms that bloom in mid to late April. The blooms resemble those of its cousins, Paeonia lactiflora, a well-known herbaceous perennial. Tree peonies feature lovely leaves as well, so if you like peony blooms and want a woody plant with above ground structure all year, tree peonies could be the right choice for you. Hedge plantings or borders along a road, walkway, or property line are ideal for tree peony bushes.
