Description

Paeonia tenuifolia is a herbaceous species of peony that is sometimes called the fern leaf peony. The leaves are finely divided into almost thread-like segments and grow close together on the stems. This peony can reach 30–60 cm (12–24 in) in height. The scented red flowers have numerous yellow stamens in the centre.

These seeds are really good germinators, as we have tested them ourselves! They very-much need the cold treatment mentioned in the germination information below, or they will not grow. They take some time, but are really good growers with this procedure, and with such a rare plant, they are a gem to grow from seeds! 

Type: Hardy perennial

Hardiness zones: 4-8

Location: Sun or part shade

Note: These seeds and plants contain toxicity. Ornamental use only.

Germination: As with many perennials, these seeds require a period of moist cold to help them break dormancy. This is done by giving them a cold 'winter' period (artificial or natural), and then a warming to simulate 'spring', and time to grow! Here's how this can be done. Obtain a planting container that has holes in the bottom for excess water to drain. Place the seeds just under the surface of your growing medium, and water. Cover your container with plastic (to retain moisture) and place your container in a cold area for 8 weeks. If you are starting these seeds in fall or very early spring we highly recommend placing them outdoors for this cold period, as the fluctuating cool/cold temperatures are ideal. Bring them indoors before the temperatures reach -2 overnight. Once the cold period is completed, place the container at room temperature for them to germinate. It is important to keep the soil moist (but not soaking wet) during this entire germination period and that they do not dry out. The seedlings first form a root underground. It may be a few weeks or months before you see above ground growth. Keep them moist and patience is required. They take some time and they are good germinators in our trials.
