Intersectional Peony

Posted by
Steven (Chicagoland, United States) on 12 June 2018 in Plant & Nature and Portfolio.

This intersectional peony is a hybrid of the herbaceous peony and tree peony. The tree peony has woody above ground stems that remain throughout the year, much like a small shrub. The leaves, however, are deciduous and fall each autumn. Herbaceous peonies die back to the ground each autumn.

So what happens with this one. Do you get half a stalk left? :) Lovely bloom shot

@grouser: Unfortunately, it is a very short-lived flower. So afterwards, it looks like a large shrub.
