Hi there,
It certainly does look like a 'Tree Peony', Paeonia suffruticosa in yellow. I definitely would not eat it, some websites say that certain parts of a Peony can be edible but I would not risk it.
Best wishes,
Samantha Jane

Japanese Tree Peony 6 - High Noon

General post from Bee

In forum: Garden Landscaping and Design Forum Event

A yellow tree peony is very rare, so it’s sure to be a show-stopper in any landscape.

'High Noon' is an amazing golden yellow tree peony that blooms in early summer. This striking variety produces clusters of yellow flowers with red flare at the base of the petals. Nice fragrance; flowers have a pleasing sweet, distinctly lemon scent. It has the huge, semi-double blooms that denote this variety. The foliage is even attractive when not in flower.

Paeonia suffruticosa, or tree peonies, are loved by everyone who has ever seen them in bloom and they have been prized and carefully cultivated in the China for centuries. A deciduous shrub, not a tree, the tree peony has woody stems. A mature shrub produces many huge, long-lasting, silken blooms, which delight the eye. The showy flowers are 6-10" across growing on woody stems. The tree is slow growing and best in partial shade since the flowers tend to fade in full sun.

In forum: Garden Landscaping and Design Forum Event

Cheerful tree peony cultivar always flowers freely from a young age. Many bright scarlet red single peony blooms with bright golden stamens in the center of the flower. An excellent choice for a first time purchase. Bright infused spring foliage, this peony plant is a joy from the moment it starts to grow. Will form a bushy shrub up to about 100cm high.

Paeonia suffruticosa 'Jitsugetsu-nishiki' (Tree peony Shin-jitsu-getsu-nishiki) is a small wide fully hardy perennial deciduous shrub with pink flowers in early summer and late spring. It grows well in semi-shade and direct sun, and prefers medium levels of water. The flowers are bowl shaped. It looks best in spring and summer.

Hi, William,
Yes, yours is a P. suffructicosa. The full, correct botanical name (labels can sometimes be deceiving or missing info) is Paeonia suffruticosa 'Lu He Hong'. Yours isn't here on Shoot right now but if you look at any of the other tree peonies pages on the site, you'll get the info you need.

In forum: Paeonia suffruticosa 'Rou Fu Rong'

Hi, David,
Your Paeonia suffruticosa 'Rou Fu Rong' is in pruning group 1 which means it requires light pruning to remove dead, damaged, diseased or misplaced shoots. It should be done in late winter or early spring whilst still dormant. Do you have this in your 'Plants I Have' list? If so, you will get detailed instructions on what to do with it and when.

Hi Jan

You're doing nothing wrong apart from possibly not feeding it enough. They are slow to get established but by now as a 10 yr old specimen it should be putting out fantastic display of flowers every year.

Paeonia suffruticosa, the tree peony is an extremely hungry feeder. If soil is poor or there is too much competition from shrubs or trees they will not flourish. If you have not been feeding it regularly ie every autumn this autumn fork or lay copious quantites of manure at the base of the plant and it should thank you the following summer with loads of flowers, if you have already fed well up to now, then your problem could be wet - Peonies hate having their feet in wet ground. If this is the case remove it quick and replant. If the ground isn't wet and you have been feeding then your problem could be an unhealthy plant so it maybe time to say good buy to it and make a new purchase.

Do let me know though as I have a feeling its the feeding...
