We are very excited to offer this little-known form of the prized woodland peony. Paeonia obovata ssp. obovata var. willmottiae hails from 8,000'+ on rocky slopes in the mountains of Hubei and Shaanxi provinces. Most of the material sold is Japanese in origin compared to this Chinese form. The deer-resistant variety willmottiae is much more vigorous than typical Paeonia obovata and is topped by single, white, cup-shaped flowers about 2 weeks earlier...early April in NC. This is in limited supply, so get them while they last.
