'BLACK OPALESCENCE' Tree Peony (Paeonia x suffruticosa '乌金耀辉-wu jin yao hui')

'BLACK OPALESCENCE' Tree Peony (Paeonia x suffruticosa '乌金耀辉-wu jin yao hui')

乌金耀辉; Wu Jin Yao Hui; Black Opalescence.

Tree Peony ‘Wu Jin Yao Hui’ roughly translates from the Chinese as ‘Black Opalescence'.  In the late-spring and early-summer, it produces an abundant display of large, deeply-cupped blossoms, composed of densely-packed, silky petals in a glossy burgundy-maroon with purple blotches at the base, highlighted by a central boss of golden stamens. The blossoms are delicately fragrant. Height and spread to 5 feet. Sometimes translated to English as 'Glittering Black Gold’ and can be found sold under this name. The Shandong region of China has been cultivating 'Mudan' (peonies) for over three thousand years! Champlain Peony Company is pleased to present this lovely 'King of Flowers' from China's ancient peony capital in very limited edition.

USDA Zones 4-8 would be very successful zones for this peony. It can tolerate somewhat warmer areas than most other peonies. Where they are grown in Shandong, China is similar to the American interior mid-Atlantic and mid-western regions with cold, dry winters and hot, humid summers. Typical winter low temps are in the teens Fahrenheit with dips into single digits and with summer temps often exceeding 100 degrees Fahrenheit.

Bare roots are available for shipping in late-fall and winter only. 3-4 branches. Tree peonies are sold by the branch number and not by the 'eye' as herbaceous and intersectional peonies. Typically, you will find single-branched tree peonies for sale. Ours are much larger and more mature at 3-4 branches. (Sun, 1978).

We do not ship potted peonies.
