Chinese Tree Peony, the Latin name is Paeonia suffiuticasa, the standard of plants is 2-3 stems, 15-35cm height. For north European country we don’t recommend this type since it can't pass the cold winter, but for France, Germany and Netherlands Chinese Tree Peony can survive.
Herbaceous Peony, the Latin name is Paeonia Lactiflara , generally the standard is 2-3 buds, for better potting effect ,4-6 bubs is better, and Herbaceous Peony is also a good choice for cutti…
