Paeonia 2014

Paeonia kesrouanensis has been grown in Australia for a number of years under the misnomer of P. mascula. russii but recently Marcus Harvey has confirmed its true identity,

Yes, Trond, it would be worth growing for the foliage alone!

Here it is this morning in full flower - I'm not the only one to enjoy it!

Gorgeous!  That is amazing foliage.  If I have room for one more peony, it should be that one!

I can understand that bee, the flowers are to be enjoyed at close encounter! They're not second to the leaves.

Good news, Lori,

Marcus Harvey has it on his latest seed-list:http://hillviewrareplants.com.au/

(if he's sold out let me know in case we get any seed set here!)
