[Floral Rivalry] Chugai 1929-40; Oberlin 1938; 1943 renamed Cherry Blossom. Farr 1941; Bobbink & Atkins 1943.
This pale pink flowering tree peony strongly recommended by Gansu Zhongchuan Peony Nursery is known for its outstanding features. At maturity, this compact, well branched plant can be adorned with masses of large flowers year after year. This cultivar is an extremely easy to grow and hardy plant that is ideal for shrub borders.
Deserving of its name translated as ‘Floral Rivalry’, this tree peony blossoms into a nest of prom-pink, crepe paper like petals that blush darker toward the flower’s heart.
