Japanese Tree Peony 4 - Peony Taiyo

General post from Bee

Taiyo means "The Sun" in Japanese, a fitting name for this blazing color. This peony plant blooms with 7-8 inch flowers, in the rose form, with flowers held well above the foliage. Fragrance is light and spicy. The plants are fast growing, to 4-feet tall and wide at maturity. If you are looking for color impact, this is the flower for you.

The tree peony Taiyo produces bright scarlet blooms. I think every garden needs a tree peony. There was a time, many years ago in ancient China, when the only person who could own a tree peony was the Emperor himself. Now everyone can own your special Japanese tree peony.

General post from Bee

(Tree Peony) Paeonia 'Kinkaku' flowers have unique bright orange edging, which adds interest to the many layers of yellow petals on this fragrant double bloom flower. It has exotic, fully double, yellow-orange blooms. The huge, ruffled, satiny flowers are very hardy. A tree peony such as 'Kinkaku', unlike garden peonies, have woody stems like a shrub that do not die back to the ground in winter and they blossom in the late spring, 2 to 3 weeks earlier than the garden varieties.

Plant tips:
1.Sun Exposure
Full Sun
Partial Shade
2.Soil Moisture Needs

The classical Japanese tree peony is Shima-nishiki, pin yin name is Dao Jin. Shima-Nishiki is a tree peony. It is a multi-stemmed, deciduous, woody shrub that typically grows to 3-4' tall and as wide. Upward facing, mildly fragrant, semi-double peony flowers are purplish-red with prominent white striping.
