'SUNSET' Tree Peony (Paeonia x suffruticosa 'luo yang hong')

'SUNSET' Tree Peony (Paeonia x suffruticosa 'luo yang hong')

‘Luoyang Hong’ is a tree peony, named after the Chinese city of Luoyang in Henan province, where peonies have been cultivated for over a millennium. Its magenta flowers are semi-double, measuring 8-10” across. Tree peonies often need to settle in one to two years before producing flowers and, once established, grow to a mature size of 5 feet in 5-8 years. Plant in sun to part shade with the eyes no more than 2” below the soil surface and protect from strong winds and afternoon sun. Deer resistant.

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 and you can expect them to blossom the first or second year after planting.

We do not ship potted peonies.
