This is without a doubt the easiest and most rewarding of all the hybrid tree peonies to grow in the garden. Medium sized semi-double yellow flowers with raspberry flares at the base of each petal. The blooms have a strong fragrance which is quite unusual for tree peonies as a whole. Forms a vigorous shrub with dissected foliage and can soon attain 1.5m in height in as little as 5 years from planting.. An added bonus is that it may often throw up a few extra flowers in the autumn. 100% recommended!
