Description How to Grow More Info Delivery
A stunning addition to the garden, Tree Peony 'Cang Zhi Hong' produces large ruffled, vivid magenta blooms with striking yellow centres in late spring. The flowers are borne on stems clothed with large, deeply divided leaves, which add an architectural element to planting schemes. These hardy, long-lived, deciduous shrubs are fantastic for adding an exotic touch to borders and work equally well in bustling cottage garden borders. Tree peonies also make beautiful cut flowers for the home. Height and spread: 1.5m (5').

Culinary information: 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.

Grow tree peonies in sun or semi shade, in well drained soil. Choose a position that is sheltered from cold winds and shaded from strong early morning sunlight. Add plenty of well rotted manure or compost ensuring that it is mixed in thoroughly and deeply. Plant tree peonies so that the grafted union sits at least 10cm (4") below the soil surface. Shallow planting may hinder establishment and delay flowering.
Feed and water regularly until plants are fully established. Remove faded flowers and cut back old foliage in autumn. In spring, apply a mulch of well rotted manure or compost to the base of the plant.
