What is the Difference Between Herbaceous Peonies and Tree Peonies?

The herbaceous peony and the tree peony are rare flowers in China, but it is difficult to distinguish them. They also have a gorgeous shape and a large flower pattern. Even in English, their names both are peony, so that people often confuse the herbaceous peony with the tree peony.

 

 In the plot of the court novel, there is often a situation in which the herbaceous peony and the tree peony are confused. Because in the flowering the herbaceous peony is the king, the tree peony is the phase, so the herbaceous peony is often used to describe the Queen's graceful posture and manners.

 

1. Difference between rhizomes

 

The herbaceous peony and the tree peony are not essentially a type of botany in nature. Although they both belong to the genus Paeonia, the herbaceous peony is a deciduous shrub, and the tree peony is a herb. It can also be seen that the biggest difference between the herbaceous peony and the tree peony is that the tree peony can be used as medicine. It has medicinal value, and the roots of peony are like grass.

 

The herbaceous peony, there is another name called "wood peony", because the roots of the herbaceous peony are woody, and the herbaceous peony is a perennial woody plant, so its roots and shoots on the ground will not wither in winter. The tree peony is different. It is a perennial herb. Every winter, most of the rhizome of the tree peony will wither and will re-grow and grow in the second year. So we often see that the rhizome of the tree peony is black, and the rhizome of the herbaceous peony is often blue-green.

 

Therefore, the feel of their roots and branches is different. The herbaceous peony as a herb, its sprays are softer, while the tree peony's sprays are harder and stronger.

 

 So the best way to distinguish between the herbaceous peony and the tree peony is to observe. Touching their roots is very straightforward to find out which one is the herbaceous peony and which one is the tree peony. However, this method is not suitable for the differentiation of the hybrids, because the variability of the new varieties will be much greater after the two varieties are crossed.

 

 

2. Difference between flowering periods

 

The flowering period of the herbaceous peony and the tree peony is not the same. The herbaceous peony is often opened in March, and the tree peony is often opened in the late spring and early summer of May. The folks therefore have a saying, "Gu Yu sees the herbaceous peony, and summer sees the tree peony." The herbaceous peony is often opened after the tree peony has completely withered, and we rarely see the peony and peony at the same time.

 

Many people who love flowers will mix the herbaceous peony and the tree peony, so that the pollen between them will spread to each other. This will not only allow new hybrid varieties, but also make the new varieties of peony and peony more and more beautiful, and it will make people's viewing time greatly longer. Because the flowering period of the herbaceous peony and the tree peony is just wrong, after the herbaceous peony blooms, the tree peony will bloom. In a word, they bloom in turn. Not only that, because the height of the herbaceous peony is slightly higher than that of the tree peony, so after artificially planting and cultivating greenhouses, when the herbaceous peony and the tree peony are displayed indoors, we can be lucky to see the high and low herbaceous peony and the tree peony. The two famous flowers bloom at the same time, it is beautiful, and it is excellent for viewing.

 

In some books, they think that the herbaceous peony is the emperor, the tree peony is the prime minister, the herbaceous peony and the tree peony together, it is called "sister flower", so if you plant the herbaceous peony and the tree peony in the courtyard, the two are often the best match.
