Paeonia






PAEONIA MOUTAN.--Moutan Paeony, or Chinese Tree Paeony. China and Japan,

1789. A beautiful shrubby species introduced from China about one

hundred years ago. The first of the kind introduced to England had

single flowers, and the plant is figured in Andrews' _Botanists'

Repository_ (tab. 463) under the name of P. papaveracea. The flowers are

white with a dark red centre. In the _Botanical Magazine_ (tab. 2175),

the same plant is figured under the name of P. Moutan var. papaveracea.

This is perfectly hardy in our gardens, and is the parent of many

beautiful and distinct varieties, including double and single white,

pink, crimson, purple, and striped.
