Paeonia japonica

Paeonia japonica flower6

Here’s Paeonia japonica in flower in the garden yesterday.  Unlike most peonies, Paeonia japonica will not tolerate full sun, instead preferring to grow in the woodland garden with hostas.

    • Like most peonies, the bloom time is short and dependent on temperatures, but at best a few days. It’s been very easy to grow in average soil conditions. We’ve haven’t tried it in boggy soils, but everywhere else has been fine. The fall-borne seed pods are fabulous.
