Bush Peony 'Mt. Fushi'
Classification: Herbaceous Peony (USDA Zones 2 - 7 or
Peony P-131 - Full Double Crown flower type, 32", Midseason. It was love at first sight for us. These beautiful soft pink blooms are very fragrant as well as color fast.
The thick, sturdy 32" stems are great for cutting. Holds up very well without staking here in our wet and windy NWest garden. Mt. Fushi is far superior in the garden and as a cut to the "old fashioned", weak stem types still coming out of Holland.
Root size - 2 to 3 eye, or greater, depending on harvest.
Shipping Season - Spring 2009.
Cultural Requirements - Sunny, well-drained location, 3to 4 feet apart. Can be left undisturbed for many years. In severe winter climates, plant with eyes 1-2 inches below surface of soil (then top with winter mulch); Zone 6-7, cover eyes with 1 inch of soil, and mulch lightly for winter; Zone 8 or 9, leave the eyes exposed to allow as much winter chill as possible, do not mulch around eyes. Not suitable for areas where winter temperatures rarely fall below 40 degrees F. or plants will produce plenty of foliage, but be shy about blooming.
