How to plant Japanese tree peony?

1.  select an area
Clear an area that receives six to eight hours of sun per day. Consider the site carefully since Japanese tree peonies will live more than 10 years and are a long-term resident in your landscape.

2. prepare soil
Loosen the soil to 18 inches deep with a shovel. Remove rocks and break up large soil clumps. Mix in a 2- to 4-inch layer of compost, peat moss or well-rotted manure to improve soil drainage and organic content.

3. mix fertilizer
Dig a 12-by-12 inch hole with a shovel. Add 1/4 cup of 10-10-10 fertilizer and 1/2 cup of bone meal to the bottom of the hole. Fill the hole halfway full of soil and mix it with the materials on the bottom with a hand trowel.

4. cover the peony root
Place the Japanese tree peony tuber in the hole with the eyes pointing upward. Cover the tuber so that the soil covers the graft by 4 to 5 inches. This will cause the graft area to grow its own roots and create a stronger plant.

5. water your peony

Firm the soil down over the tuber with your hands. Do not press so hard that the soil becomes compacted. Compacted soil will cause water to run off the planting site instead of being absorbed by the soil. Water the planting area with a bucket full of water.

The Sun in My Garden – Peony Taiyo

Taiyo means "The Sun" in Japanese, a fitting name for this blazing color. This peony plant blooms with 7-8 inch flowers, in the rose form, with flowers held well above the foliage. Fragrance is light and spicy. The plants are fast growing, to 4-feet tall and wide at maturity. If you are looking for color impact, this is the flower for you.


The tree peony Taiyo produces bright scarlet blooms. I think every garden needs a tree peony. There was a time, many years ago in ancient China, when the only person who could own a tree peony was the Emperor himself. Now everyone can own your special Japanese tree peony. I bought Japanese tree peony on China-Plants.com, and you?


Hardy Japanese tree peony Kinkaku

(Tree Peony) Paeonia 'Kinkaku' flowers have unique bright orange edging, which adds interest to the many layers of yellow petals on this fragrant double bloom flower. It has exotic, fully double, yellow-orange blooms. The huge, ruffled, satiny flowers are very hardy. A tree peony such as 'Kinkaku', unlike garden peonies, have woody stems like a shrub that do not die back to the ground in winter and they blossom in the late spring, 2 to 3 weeks earlier than the garden varieties.
