Springhill Kirinmaru Peony

Posted by kousa none (My Page) on

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.

RE: Springhill Kirinmaru Peony

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.
