Paeonia obovata var willmottiae red start

Paeonia obovata var. 'Willmottiae' 'Red Start'


This is a cultivar we found growing in the nursery. It has beautiful dusky red-purple leaves when they first emerge in the spring.  They can stay dark quite a while if the spring is cool. When they green out, they are a handsome dark grey-green leaf.  Blooms later in May than P. japonica and is followed in late summer by bright red seed heads with dark blue seeds.

We are offering 3-year-old bare-root plants. These will need a couple years to settle in before blooming.

Zones 4-8. 30-40 in. Part sun to light shade, good rich soil.
