Floral Rivalry is the basic translation of the Japanese Hanakisoi (so I’m told).
Apricot-pink petals with a soft pink edge make up the semi-double blooms of this variety. Peonies are classic garden plants that add a bit of nostalgia and charm to the garden and have been in high demand over the last few years and harder to come by.
Tree peonies differ from garden peonies in that they have woody stems like a shrub. The branches do not die back to the ground in winter as do the herbaceous varieties. Exotic, uniquely coloured, and often fragrant blooms are produced in late spring, about two or three weeks before the shrub varieties. This one comes in a good sized 7L pot.
