Shimadaijin Tree Peony

New

Shimadaijin Tree Peony

Widely considered to be one of the best tree peonies on the market, Shimadaijin flaunts its eye catching semi-double, reddish-purple blooms throughout the early flowering season. The elegant goblet shape of the peonies is enhanced by the silky sheen of the petals, contrasting golden stamens and the impressive 8" size of the blooms. The rich green foliage is deeply cut into large, pointed lobes. Shimadaijin is pleasingly fragrant and quite vigorous. Tree peonies form shrubs of about 3-7' tall with woody stems. Our tree peonies are grafted and imported directly from Japan.
  • Hardiness Zones 4-7
  • Mature Height 36 - 84 inches
