A friend has asked me where she can get this?
many garden centres stock P rubra, but often they only have them on 'display' during the spring/growing/ flowering season.

I'm not sure whether you're asking about a rose or a paeony?
Thankyou SBG I thought I would find at this time of year but local garden centers dont appear to have them.
Bamboo I am asking about a Peony Rose.
Nope, still not getting it - what's a paeony rose?
herbacous paeony. such as 'sarah bernhart. have a look on my plant list bamboo and you will recognise them for sure.
Why's it called a rose then? Or is this just one of those common name things?
Seaburngirl may I ask? as I have what I think is a beautiful peony rose in a lovely deep red? But have always been confused as to what to call it I thought they were Paeonia suffruticosa are they peony roses? If not how do you tell the difference.
I just went to your plant list SBG and then googled peony rubra, mine looks like a rubra in colour but there are so many deep reds and I still dont know which is which.
Good morning Drc726 I have just found this linkhttp://www.kelways.co.uk/shopping_basket.php
I have have added peony rubra.
Maybe this site could help you.

Thank-you Scotkat, just had a look at the site good for peonies. I think mine is a Peony tenuifolia 'Rubra Plena' colour, height and flowering time May to June fits. My other one hasnt flowered yet.
Your wellcome Drc726 I like the Rubra a stunning colour.
And a great site for peony.
I have always assumed they had the rose part as the flower looks like a damask rose [well a bit].
P.suffruticosa is one of the shrubby 'tree paeony' and you can get some stunning flower forms of this.
So really then, it should be a rose paeony? Because its a paeony Scotkat's talking about, not a rose? I know I'm probably being pedantic, but when you're literal minded like me, the order of the words is important, or I simply miss the point!!
its back to the old nugget of the use of common names but so many people only know them. so when the word rose is also a colour it gets more confusing. dont worry bamboo, they say english is really difficult :o)
Hi Bamboo sorry if I have confused you but I have always known them as peony rose and in gardens in Scotland you can see many Peony Roses grown.
I don't know why I find this so difficult - must be the way my brain works - or not, as the case may be!I think I've finally got it, its a paeony;-)
Bamboo you are still spelling it wrong:)
Also this is a nice read on her link.

That's a moot one, Scotkat - paeony, in the latin is Paeonia, and you see it spelt the way I'm doing it, or sometimes the way you are. I just stick to the original, its the way it is in both my encyclopaedias!
May I just say that all my books spell it Paeonia and its what I always used. Until the Internet which when googling for it always seems to turns the first bit into Peon which ever way its entered hope that helps
Hi Drc yes I really dont think it matters how it is spelt comes to the same plant at the end of the day..
Exactly, Scotkat - but you did point out that I'd 'misspelled' it;-))) Have you noticed that the word encyclopaedia differs to - often comes up as encyclopedia now, and is also acceptable.
How do I say thanks?
« ive just rooted some fuchsia cuttings and now potted them, am i best keeping them...
Not so much a question as some information.
This is a common urban myth.
