I am very excited to finally be able to offer blooming Paeonia (pay-OH-nee-ah) obovata plants (6-7 year old plants).  This rarely offered Japanese Woodland Peony is slow-growing and usually takes more than five years to reach blooming size from seed.  But, with a little patience, you are rewarded in late spring by their lovely single, rose-pink flowers on 18″ – 24″ stems.   In the fall, the mature seed pods split open to reveal dramatic metallic-blue fertile seeds and red infertile seeds. 

Paeonia obovata prefers bright shade in humus-rich, moist, well drained soil, in USDA zones 5 – 8.  Very limited quantities are available.
