Description
  • Rarely offered seed
A much sought-after variety. The tissue paper white blooms are splashed with deep burgundy at the base of each petal. There are few plants that can compete with the beauty of a tree peony in full bloom. A mature plant can boast in excess of a hundred exotic blooms, each measuring up to 25cm (10") or more in diameter! These exceptional shrubs are hardy and disease resistant, and will continue to bloom for a lifetime. The exotic flowers of Tree Peony 'Rockii Mixed' are simply breathtaking in borders and make exquisite cut flowers. When grown from seed, tree peonies will reward patient gardeners by blooming 5-7 years from sowing. Height and spread: 150cm (60").

How to plant peonies


Culinary note: The petals can be added to salads, or cooked slightly and sweetened for a treat. Peony water was also once considered a delicacy and the blooms can be floated in punches. For more details about edible flowers click here.

Sowing

Germination of Tree Peony seed can be slow and erratic but is well worth the effort. The easiest method of sowing tree peonies is quite different to the most seeds. Place seeds in a polythene bag with some lightly moist vermiculite of seed sowing compost. Put a twist tie around the top of the bag and put in a warm place (but not in full sun) for 3 months at a temperature of 21C (70F). During this period the root system of the peony plants will start to develop. Once the roots are 2.5cm (1") in length, move the bags to a cooler position at a temperature of 5C (40F) for 10-12 weeks.

Keep a close eye on the bags of developing seedlings. Immediately the shoots appear remove them from the bags and pot up the peony seedlings individually into 7.5cm (3") pots. These should be grown on in a cool place until the seedling has developed into a good sized plant. Gradually acclimatise young Tree Peony plants to outdoor conditions before moving them outside. Plant out on well drained, rich fertile soil at the same depth as in the original pot, spacing each plant 45cm (18") apart. Choose a sunny or semi shaded position that is sheltered from cold winds and shaded from strong early morning sunlight.

More Info

Water regularly until plants are fully established. Prune well established tree peonies in spring whilst dormant, removing crossing and damaged stems to create a healthy open framework. After pruning, apply a mulch of well rotted manure or compost around the base of the plant. With patience, dedicated gardeners will be rewarded with beautiful Tree Peony flowers from between 5 and 7 years from sowing. Caution: All parts are harmful if eaten.
