This is one of the aristocrats of tree peonies. Notoriously difficult to propagate but no more difficult to grow than any other tree peony. Dramatic, deep mahogany red, semi-double flowers which open at an angle like broad trumpets. Plentiful blooms and finely dissected foliage which continues to be attractive throughout the growing season. Once established this hybrid will grow vigorously forming a shrub of great garden merit. One of the last plants to flower in May. Height and spread after 8 years approx 120cm x 90cm.
