Bargain Japanese tree peonies

Might be that one,aym, No label, except 'yellow peony' and I can't tell from just a flower. I got it from an NGS open garden years ago.

re seeds, remind me at seeding time. They need sowing fresh and over-wintering outside. That way they germinate in the first spring rather than eventually or never.


New to the forum, advice please

Hi there, welcome to the forum.

We had a thread on this recently, have a look here and see if it's any help

Thanks Anomander.

I'm not completely sure what mine are, doubtful origins. 

The yellow one has huge flowers and 6'' seed pods in a good year. The red one has much smaller flowers and was bought as delavyi. It has babies in yellow, blotchy orange and, rarely, red.


 I had to show this one off again, though it's one of the herbaceous ones, P cambessedesii,none too hardy. Those seeds germinated freely last year. The mother plant isn't mine and I don't know if I'll be able to keep it in a cold GH when we get a real winter.

Bigger than what? 

My yellow one is about 8 foot or more but it's more shrub (ie multi-stemmed) than tree. The red one 5-6 feet. same multi-stemmed.

Fast Growing climber plant

It roots down where it spreads over the ground. It's a bit of a pain to untangle from fences and if it's been there a long time the original root will be quite big. But compared to some plants it's easy to get rid of. Yes, find the root, you couldget it ground out if it's too big to dig

Fancy ivy cultivars have different coloured leaves and different shapes.

My tree paeonies aren't temperamental

They behave very well, putting up with a major hack when necessary. The flowering season is short but the leaves are beautiful and the seed pods fantastic. 

and the seeds are fertile.  lots of babies.

I find the flowers last longer if they're in a bit of shade. Not sure the herbaceous ones  (like Sarah Bernhardt) would like that.
