Description
 
This Chinese woodland Peony is one of the few species blooming and thriving in full shade as well as sun.  Nicely dissected ferny foliage and slightly nodding single pink flowers 2-3 per stem makes this distinctively beautiful.  We had a rare trip in the spring to Yunnan and Sichuan in 2006 to see plants in flower and this was one of the standouts.  Later to make growth in the spring than some of the other species so don't panic.  These are impressively large plants with multiple flowering eyes.  The biggest problem with peonies is planting them too deep so just cover the red growth bud an inch or two at most if dormant.
