Serving as a novel addition to your garden is the Paeonia anomala ssp. veitchii, commonly known as Veitch's Peony. This non-woody, herbaceous perennial peony distinguishes itself through its drooping, saucer-shaped flowers, bathing your garden in hues of white, pale pink, and deep pink. Sprouting in late spring or early summer, the flowers are complemented by a prominent display of lemon-yellow stamens. This versatile peony, measuring ½-1m high, grows from a thick, irregular taproot and slender side roots, offering a unique silhouette amidst the foliage overview. The deep green, divided leaves bear a paler underside, boldly highlighting the 2-4 fully developed flowers per stem that bloom in vibrant shades of pink to magenta-red or on rare occasions, almost white. Named after the pioneering plant hunting firm, James Veitch & Sons, this subspecies traces its roots back to the robust mountainous regions of China/Tibet. Famously resilient, Veitch’s Peony thrives exceptionally well in Alberta Zones 3-4. Turn your garden into an exotic paradise with our Veitch’s Peony—the perfect blend of rarity, beauty, and resilience.
