Order Top Quality Rockii Tree Peony With Low Price

Hello, everyone!

Today I want to introduce another much sought-after variety. Although plants subsequently known as Paeonia rockii were originally introduced to western cultivation in the 1920s, it was still little known in cultivation.

The tissue paper blooms are splashed with deep burgundy at the base of each petal. There are few plants that can compete with the beauty of a tree peony in full bloom.

A mature plant can boast in excess of a hundred blooms, each measuring up to 20cm (7.87”) or more in diameter! These exceptional shrubs are hardy and disease resistant, and will continue to bloom for a lifetime.

The peony flowers of the tree peony are simply breathtaking in borders and make exquisite cut flowers for vases indoors.

Zhongchuan Peony Nursery has devoted to cultivar rockii tree peony for 20 years. 100000 grafted rockii peonies are offered in 2013 on China-Plants.com. Supplied as a single stem, 2 year old bare root plant. Height and spread: 30-45cm (11.8”-17.7’’). Buy peonies directly from base, low price is guaranteed!

These grafted rockii peony plants are what you will receive. www.china-plants.com

Planting Instructions: Take Care of Your Herbaceous Peonies


Herbaceous peonies do best in hardiness zones.  Plant roots no deeper than 10cm below the soil surface, watering only as needed. Peonies will begin to die back in August in preparation for a period of needed dormancy. Remove foliage from garden area to avoid disease problems.


Inspect peony roots carefully when you receive them. If they appear dry, soak in water for 4 hours. If they cannot be planted soon, repack them in the packing material and wet thoroughly, leaving in a dark, cool place. They will keep for a week or two without damage. 


Select a sunny, well-drained location with good, well-drained, soil.  Dig a hole large enough to accommodate the root system. Plant peonies below the soil surface with the eyes facing upwards. Fill the hole with soil and a good compost, water thoroughly. For the first winter, apply a 3 to 4 inch layer of loose mulch. This is especially important in the North or with late-season planting. Pull mulch back in the spring, away from new shoots. Once peonies are established, winter mulch is not needed. The ideal transplant time is anytime during the fall when the ground is not frozen. 


Peonies should not be over-fertilized. Bone meal is a good fertilizer, but any complete garden fertilizer not too rich in nitrogen is ideal. Best time to fertilize is early summer, after peonies have bloomed and been deadheaded. They will be developing new eyes for the next season at this time. Once every several years an application of a well-balanced, slow-release fertilizer is adequate. Generous amounts of fertilizer can be detrimental to peonies. In severe cases of over-fertilization, the entire plant may be burned. Less severe consequences may be fewer blooms, no blooms or spindly growth.


Peonies bloom late-May through early-July in our Zhongchuan, Gansu climate, Depending on your zone, they will bloom within a few weeks of this in Spring.
