Paeonia ludlowii

Ludlow's tree peony

P. ludlowii is an open, upright medium-sized deciduous shrub with large, divided leaves. In it's homeland, Tibet, this plant is known as lumaidao meaning "God's flower". 

These flowers are bright golden-yellow, around 12cm in width, opening with the leaves in late spring. It does best in fertile, neutral to slightly alkaline, well-drained soil. 

Specimens prefer to be planted deep and dislike too much water. In early spring and during summer, a high-potash liquid feed can stimulate richer flowering. 

Exotic looking but easy to grow and long lived.
