2014 Peony obovata willmottiae Red & Blue Seed Pods

Wow! I said it once about this peony when it bloomed, First Bloom on Peony P. obovata var. willmottiae, and I'll say it again! If you want a peony that's going to brighten up your shade garden in spring and in fall, then Peony P. obovata var. willmottiae is definitely the peony for you! The white blooms with a burgundy and gold center really brighten up the shade garden in the spring, but the eye-popping fuchsia, red, and blue seed pods are like watching a brightly colored fireworks display in early fall! So if you were thinking you needed another reason to grow this shade loving beauty, then you've definitely got one!

  1. Very nice seeds. Where may I purchase some?

    1. Hello, I originally purchased this Peony obovata willmottiae as a plant from Plant Delights Nursery ( It doesn't look like they have it offered on their web site at the moment, but they change their offerings every year. They have a really nice catalog. So you may want to ask to be added. Be careful, though, you will find so many plants you just "have to have"! Good luck!!
