What Is a Tree Peony?
The tree peony, scientifically known as the Paeonia suffruticosa, belongs to the Northwest tree peony variety group. Its flowers are imbued with a unique fragrance and can bloom up to 150, 300, or even 800 flowers at once. These magnificent plants can grow into towering trees, reaching heights of 3 to 5 meters. Tree peonies are well-suited for cultivation in regions with cold climates, such as Russia, Denmark, Sweden, where they can naturally withstand temperatures as low as -43°C. They have also been widely planted in countries like the United States, Canada, the Netherlands, Denmark, Germany, and Russia.
