'BLUE SAPPHIRE' Tree Peony (Paeonia x suffruticosa 'lan bao shi')

'BLUE SAPPHIRE' Tree Peony (Paeonia x suffruticosa 'lan bao shi')

Lan Bao Shi; Blue Sapphire.

'Lan Bao Shi', also known as 'Blue Sapphire' or 'Blue Jewel' tree peony will grow to be about 6 feet tall at maturity, with a spread of 6 feet. It has a low spreading canopy. It grows at a slow rate maturing in 15 to 20 years. This remarkable tree peony features bold, lightly-scented, pink to pale-lavender, cup-shaped, 6-inch blossoms with powder-blue overtones, butter-yellow stamen, and hot-pink petal flares from mid to late-spring. The flowers are excellent for cutting. 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.
