Shima-Nishiki is truly a classic with large, purplish-red and white-striped blossoms with bright golden stamens. If you have room to try only one tree peony (and you will find more room once hooked), try this one. Its woody structure provides support for gigantic dinnerplate-sized flowers on a plant that grows 4-5' tall, with up to 50 blooms per plant. After they bloom, tree peonies provide structure to the garden with deep green leaves in summer, and bronze and purple foliage in fall. Native to China and cultivated for millennia, these deer-resistant plants are often referred to as woody shrubs and thrive in Zones 4-9. Tree peonies can be grown further north, but they have substantial die-back and behave more like an herbaceous peony, sprouting from the base every year, with more sporadic bloom. Tree peonies grow slowly, producing 1-6" of new growth each year, and care should be taken not to prune them back like you would herbaceous peonies. The branches can be brittle, so they should be placed in an area with little traffic. Given well-drained soil and dappled sunlight, they will live for years to come. Paeonia suffruiticosa ?Shima-Nishikii'
