Springhill Kirinmaru Peony

I just received Kirinmaru Peony from Springhill. The root is woody and the eyes are rather small but it looks healthy. This is the woodiest root of a herbaceous peony that I have ever seen. In fact, it appears that a portion of the root was sawed off rather than cut off. It will be interesting to see how this peony behaves compared to a normal tuberous root plant..

Yes it looks sawed off to me too. I think it will be OK as long as you have some buds. That large woody root portion contains lots of energy to get the division off to a good start. Al

I purchased Kirinmaru in 2011 from a different company and mine looked the same as yours when it arrived. It only had two small eyes, but it did grow last Spring. I was just happy it was alive. Now I see this Spring it has three eyes that has sent up leaves.

This plant seems to be a smaller peony than my other peonies. It didn't bloom last year so I'm anxious to see if it blooms this year. Yours should do fine also.

Deeter, please post a photo of the flower if it blooms this year. I sure hope yours does because I really would like to see a photo of the peony flower from a home grower rather than the ad photo. Their photo of it looks really nice

RE: Springhill Kirinmaru Peony

I will do that; I'm anxious to see if it's as pretty as the photo's also.

Just saw that Fina is offering Kirinmaru for fall '15. Has anyone had this one bloom in their garden?


 o
RE: Springhill Kirinmaru Peony

Are you going to get it, Liz? THeir is probably the true one as their bloom looks to be striped.

RE: Springhill Kirinmaru Peony

Fina's roots are so nice it might be worth getting. I ordered it from Spring Hill last year but the root was relatively small, 3 eyes but not much in the way of feeder roots. Fina had a few that were on my "Wanted" list. Still trying to decide what if any to order.

Talked myself into it, just put in an order for Kirinmaru, Anemoneflora Rosea, Pink Cotton Candy and Requiem.

Just to add a note: I ordered Kirinmaru this past fall from a little-known company called ohmypeonies in Wisconsin. They grow it in their fields and it has bloomed striped for them, so the photo they show is the actual plant, and it should be true. I paid $25 plus shipping for mine. You might check out their website, it is fairly new.

Vicky, thank you very much for the info. I hope your Kirinmaru will bloom next year. Please let us know how it does for you and if you have pic that would be great.

I bought my Kirinmaru from Springhill two years ago. Last year it bloomed but nothing like the picture; there was no stripes and the color was pink rather than white or red. It was also the floppiest peony in my garden. I was so disappointed. Fortunately, Springhill refunded me the money after I contacted them. I think that I will wait a few more years before I will get this peony.

I just purchased a peony from Peonies4u.com called Shima Nishiki and the flower looks similar to the one that you mention except it's a tree variety it was recommended as an outstanding variety with really good folage. Has any of you done business with this company. Daves garden gave it a positive and the lady Marsha Reed was very helpful and informative with ALL of my questions. not much for online plant shopping BUT gave it a try any advice?


 o
RE: Springhill Kirinmaru Peony

I ordered from them last year, very happy with the roots and service. I'd order from them again

RE: Springhill Kirinmaru Peony

If you are talking about CharMarror Peony,I would second what LinnElizabeth said, I have ordered 2-3 times, and had very good service, very personal attention with answers to my questions, and good roots, too. They have a very nice selection and fair prices.

RE: Springhill Kirinmaru Peony

thanks Vicky I look fwd to receiving these plants and I will keep you posted as to their quality But I was impressed not only with the knowledge but the prices were very reasonable IMO GOD BLESS

RE: Springhill Kirinmaru Peony

Just received my order from Charmarron gardens or Peonies4U. AND WOW!!! these plants are far above anything I imagined would come from an online order the plants were packed in 2 separate boxes one of tree peonies andand the other herbaceious. both were packed extremely well still moist.
Now I just have to get them in the ground. with all of this rain it will be a chore. But II am amazed at the Quality and the size of the plants. The web sight said something like 2-3 eyes But I see none of these under 6 eyes and some with a lot more and the lady bugs were FREE LOL!!.
I want to thank the person on this forum that posted this great supplier. I can't remember just who it is or was but this Forum has paid off big time. Thanks again to all that share their experiences and resources with many of us that are somewhat novice at online shopping But most of all the info that all share to help everyone have success with their endeavor to garden with the best GOD BLESS Thank you Charmarron Garden aka peonies4U I will be back GOD BLESS!!! Now I want Kirinmaru maybe next year LOL

RE: Springhill Kirinmaru Peony

hi, raptor1, How much of the price? Charmarron gardens doesn't list prices there.


 o
RE: Springhill Kirinmaru Peony

They have a page with the prices listed separately, littlebin. Think it's under Pricing and Shipping. Most of the herbaceous are $20-$25 ea, trees are $40-$60.
