America’s love affair with peonies started here. Over the past 200 years, thousands of varieties of Paeonia lactiflora
have graced our gardens, but in 1810 there were only three, freshly arrived from China. Today ‘Humei’ is still ruggedly handsome, watermelon-pink, cinnamon-scented, and — for gardeners like us — a thrill. 3-5 eye roots, 30-32”, late, zones 3a-7b(8bWC), from Iowa.
Last offered in 2011. We offer a rotating selection of peonies. If you’d like to be notified the next time we offer this treasure, sign up for an email alert.
