Tree Peony

With the unusually warm weather that we’ve had this spring, my tree peony is blooming extra early.  I adore regular peonies which bloom a bit later in the season and love having a tree peony to enjoy before the big regular peony show.

The deer don’t touch this plant which makes it a must for my deer-infested yard.

My mom gave me my tree peony many years ago for my birthday.  Talk about a gift that keeps on giving!

Do you grow this plant?  I highly recommend it!

  1. I am absolutely IN LOVE with peonies. They don’t grow well where I live, but at the lakehouse I have a BUNCH of them, thanks to the previous owners. There are lots of buds on them, so I’m expecting a grand show.

    Just bought one to plant. Disappointed that it says it will only bloom for a week or ten days though!

    Gorgeous!!! I have three small peony plants that didn’t bloom last year. I’m hoping something will happen with them this Spring.

    I’ve never heard of a tree peony, It is beautiful. I’m going to check at my local garden center to see if they will grow in my area. Thanks for sharing.

    Oh I am so jealous! Peonies don’t grow where I live (Texas Gulf Coast). The only place we can get them is at the market. I just love the layers of soft pink petals. They’re gorgeous. Thanks for sharing yours. Leslie

  6. Beautiful plant! I’m jealous!
