Unlike many of its more common and gaudy cousins, this demure woodland Japanese peony makes an 18" tall x 18" wide clump with grey-green foliage. In early spring it is topped with lovely, 3" wide white cups fading to a dark burgundy center with yellow stamens. After flowering, the pods split to reveal gorgeous metallic-blue seeds on red stalks. Paeonia japonica is great as a deer-resistant specimen in the woodland garden or scattered throughout the shady perennial border. This is often mistakenly sold as Paeonia obovata 'Alba'.
