Vesuvian
P. lutea hybrid

Semi- to full double, deep maroon coloured blooms. The outer petals are facing out and curl back, while the inner petals are wavier and face up. The blooms nod a bit, a typical characteristic of this type of lutea-hybrids, but the stems are long enough to stick the blooms outside the foliage and show their full beauty. Mounding bushes do not grow tall at all and have finely cut and dark green foliage. High vigour and easy flowering. Mature specimens stay handsome and tidy.

We only carry tree peonies that we have tested extensively ourselves, and that have proven the ability to withstand several of our mostly nasty wet Dutch winters. Our collection of tree peonies characterizes itself by cultivars that all easily produce new ground shoots and easy flowering on first year branches, which holds promise for good performance even after the worst of winters.
All of our tree peonies are propagated by division only, and in fact no different than any of our other herbaceous and intersectional peonies. All our tree peonies do not have any foreign root, they are completely on their own roots!
This gives many advantages in comparison to the common way in which tree peonies are offered (grafted on a herbaceous nurse root). The main benefits include a flying start after planting, superior vigour and more than a fair chance on first year bloom already.
What’s more is that planting is just like for any herbaceous peony, which often proves to make the start a lot safer.
