Tree peonies 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 aboveground 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.
