Peonies

Celebrating 15 years of Peonies at Blossom Hill Nursery

Peonies are very hardy, drought tolerant, disease resistant perennials. Our original collection at Blossom Hill consisted of primarily heritage varieties. We have continued to add newer introductions of herbaceous peonies as well as species, tree and Itoh (intersectional) peonies.

Peonies are divided and sold bare root in the autumn but there are limited number of each variety so order early to avoid disappointment. 

Herbaceous peonies are bush peonies that die to the ground each autumn and regrow in the spring. Tree peonies are woody shrubs that lose their leaves in autumn but the stems remain and produce leaves and flowers the next spring. Itoh or intersectional peonies are crosses between the herbaceous and tree peonies. They die to the ground each autumn and regrow in the spring. Their foliage and flower colours tend to be similar to that of tree peonies.
