Not trees, but shrubs, tree peonies have flamboyant, papery blooms and interesting foliage. But they are far from delicate – planted in the right spot they can last for many years.

There are many cultivars to choose from, with single and double flowers, in a range of colours. They thrive in fertile, well-drained soil in full sun.
