 3) Strong fragrance; the smell of one open flower can dominate that of 10 other open flowers from another Peony.
 
 4) Resistance to drought and frost; tolerance of salt and base. Can bear temperatures as low as -43°C; can still grow normally at pH above 7.The cultivation of Gansu Purpura Peony is simple and does not require strict management; it is less attacked by diseases and pests, but in hot and humid weather leaves will grow mould and present scorched leaf symptoms; a sterilizing can be sprayed on foliage to combat the disease.
 
2、The peony  planting seasons are fall and spring.
 
There are 3 ways of propagation: sowing, budding, and grafting. Sown seeds can blossom after five years; grafted and budded seedlings can blossom just after plantation, but need 2-3 years after the rejuvenation period to offer a better blossom.
