'SHIMA-NISHIKI' Tree Peony (Paeonia x suffruticosa '岛锦-dao jin')

'SHIMA-NISHIKI' Tree Peony (Paeonia x suffruticosa '岛锦-dao jin')

One of our most popular Japanese tree peonies, '岛锦' or 'Dao Jin' is an unusual tree peony that exhibits very large, bicolored, red flowers marbled with white and pink in late-spring. The blossoms have a nice light fragrance and appear on erect stems above deep-green foliage with an interesting deeply-divided texture. In Japan this peony is called 'Shima-Nishiki' and is an ideal choice for any gardener who is looking for something a bit different. The gigantic 10-inch, semi-double flowers have a magical appearance in late-spring to early-summer with their flamboyant coloring of raspberry-red and pale-pink to white marbling held high on relatively low shrubs up to 4-feet tall and wide.

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.
