This is one of the first cultivated peony in Europe and then in North America; first as a medicinal plant actually and more recently for its ornamental qualities. Many cultivars are on the market today, but the regular species has usually pink flowers. The seeds offered are from a particular specimen with a very compact growth habit – as seen in the image.
Excellent included in the flower border or even used in groups.
Germination: if sown fresh in very early fall, Peony seeds will germinate readily. If not, they will need a warm/moist period followed by a cold/moist period for complete germination. So, it may take 2 years for the first leaves to appear.
