Peony Garden Treasure is a hybrid variety of peonies that appeared in the USA in 1984. Gives very lush, large yellow flowers: with proper care, up to 50 peonies appear on 1 bush. Due to its high winter hardiness, it can be cultivated not only in the central part of Russia, but also in some regions of the Urals and Southern Siberia.

Description of peony Garden Treasure

Peony Garden Treasure belongs to the category of hybrid ito-varieties. This means that they are bred as a result of crossing herbaceous and tree-like peonies. Its name literally translates as "garden treasure". Differs in large, attractive yellow flowers, exuding a very strong aroma.

Peony belongs to sun-loving plants. Even a faint shadow from nearby bushes, trees or buildings disturbs him. Light shading for 2-3 hours a day is allowed only in the south. The stems of the bush are quite strong, so it does not need supporting supports. The leaves are small, pinnate, rich green.

In the description of the peony ito Garzhen Trezhe, it is indicated that the variety is highly winter-hardy. Therefore, such a bush can be grown in many regions of Russia:

  • Moscow region and middle lane;
  • Volgo-Vyatka region;
  • Black earth;
  • Kuban and the North Caucasus.

Cultivation in the Urals and South Siberia is also allowed. However, additional protection of the plant for the winter is required here - mulching and shelter (especially for young seedlings).

Peony Garden Treasure is distinguished by a beautiful, spreading bush with lush, large flowers.

Important! With a lack of light - increased cloudiness and strong shade - the peony may not bloom at all.

Flowering features

Peony ito Garden Trezhe is a hybrid with lush flowers that reach 20-24 cm in diameter. Large-flowered, semi-double variety with a medium-late flowering period (second half of summer). Flowers have up to 50 golden-yellow petals, orange core. In this case, flowering begins in 2-3 years. It will be long-lasting (30-50 buds appear on an adult bush within a month) if several conditions are met:

  • abundance of sunlight - landing in an open area, away from sources of shade;
  • moderate but regular watering;
  • fairly fertile, well-drained soil;
  • regular feeding;
  • mulching and shelter for the winter.

The Garden Treasure peony often blooms in late July - early August. In some cases, it can give flowers until the first half of September.

With proper care, Garden Treasure peony flowers turn out to be very large - more than 20 cm in diameter

Attention! Peony Garden Treasure has repeatedly participated in flower exhibitions. In 1996 he received the gold medal of the Peony Society (USA).

Application in design

Since the peony bush ito Garden Treasure turns out to be very spreading, it decorates the garden well in itself. Usually it is planted in open spaces, in the very center of the flower garden, so that it attracts attention. Along with single plantings, the peony goes well with other plants, for example:

  • delphinium;
  • daisy;
  • blue forget-me-not;
  • phlox;
  • sedum;
  • lily;
  • astilba;
  • petunia;
  • pelargonium;
  • hydrangeas
  • conifers (juniper, thuja, dwarf spruce).

Experienced gardeners note that plants of the Buttercup family should not be placed next to the Garden Treasure peony. It also does not tolerate well in the shade, so it is better not to plant it next to trees, shrubs and other large-sized plants.

Garden Treasure looks great in rock gardens, mixborders, along paths, next to benches and verandas. If there is a pond in the garden, the peony bushes will be very beautifully reflected in the water.

Important! Since the peony bush turns out to be very large, it will not work to grow it in pots. In addition, the plant requires abundant sunlight, which is not easy to provide in an apartment.

Sprawling bushes Garden Treasure look good both in compositions and in single plantings

Reproduction methods

Since the variety is hybrid, it will not work to breed it with seeds. However, vegetative propagation methods are available:

  • dividing the bush;
  • cuttings;
  • layering.

To less injure the bush, you can propagate it by cuttings. You can start breeding after the Garden Treasure peony turns 5 years old. The sequence of actions is as follows:

  1. In early June, several cuttings of the middle part of the shoots are harvested. Their length can be any, but the main thing is that each has 2 internodes.
  2. An upper cut is made - 2 cm above the last sheet.
  3. The bottom cut is also made - just under the sheet pillow.
  4. The cutting is kept in a growth stimulant solution, for example, in Kornevin, for several hours.
  5. Then a mixture of equal amounts of turf and humus is made, wet sand is poured on top with a layer of 5-6 cm and the cutting is rooted at an angle of 45 degrees (in open ground).
  6. Moisturize abundantly, grow in greenhouse conditions (under a film) for a month, then begin to ventilate.
  7. At the end of August, you can open a greenhouse for several days, and then mulch it for the winter - the Garden Treasure peony needs shelter. For this, you can use straw, sawdust, pine needles, peat.

Advice! At the beginning of the next spring, after the snow melts, the mulch should be removed as soon as possible. Otherwise, peony sprouts can overheat, and they can be transplanted to a permanent place in 2-3 years.

Landing rules

Peony Garden Treasure is better to immediately plant in a permanent place, so as not to transplant later. The main requirement is the openness of the space, the absence of even a faint shadow (which is especially important in the middle lane). The shrub prefers well-drained, light and fairly fertile loams. If the soil is depleted, it needs to be fed regularly. The reaction is neutral or slightly acidic (pH 5.5 to 7.0).

The bushes are planted at the end of August, 1-1.5 months before the first frost. On the other hand, it should not be planted earlier - otherwise Garden Treasure may start to actively grow, and young shoots will freeze.

For planting, you can prepare a mixture of several components:

  • 1 part of garden soil;
  • 2 part compost;
  • 200 g superphosphate;
  • 60 g of potassium salt.

Next, you need to clean the area and dig it up to a depth of 50 cm. The hole is dug out of medium size - about 50 cm in depth and in diameter. A peony seedling Garden Treasure is buried so that it fits freely in the hole, and at the same time the buds remain above the soil at a height of 2-3 cm.Then it is watered abundantly and after a few days mulched with hay, sawdust or needles so that the soil preserves well moisture in summer.

If several bushes are planted at the same time, the distance between them should be at least 1.5 m

Important! It is advisable to purchase garden peony seedlings in specialized stores. When buying, special attention should be paid to the condition of the roots - they should not have any signs of damage.

Follow-up care

Peony Garden Treasure does not need strong watering. Moderate moisture is needed - for example, 2-3 times a month (in the absence of precipitation), 2-3 buckets per adult bush. In case of drought, you can water it weekly or more often: the soil should not crack, at the same time, waterlogging is also not allowed.

Top dressing is applied several times per season:

  1. After the final snow melt, you can pour a solution of 2 g of potassium permanganate for 5 d of water.
  2. In April, after the start of growth, nitrogen fertilization is given.
  3. In mid-May, they are fed with complex fertilizer.
  4. During the formation of buds, a mixture of ammonium nitrate, superphosphate and potassium dressing is given.
  5. After the end of flowering (at the beginning of August), the Garden Treasure peony is fed the last time with potassium and superphosphate.

Advice! The soil should be loosened regularly - 1-2 times a month. To retain moisture and suppress the growth of weeds, it is advisable to mulch it in the spring. To do this, use straw, hay, sawdust and other materials at hand.

Preparing for winter

The last feeding with superphosphate and potassium sulfate is given in late August or early September, after which it is no longer necessary to fertilize the peony. Carrying out autumn pruning is also optional - it is better not to touch the bush until 4-5 years of age. Then it is allowed to carry out a sanitary and shaping haircut, removing damaged, diseased and clearly protruding branches. Some gardeners advise to cut the Garden Treasure peony under the stump, leaving branches 4-5 cm tall.

Mature shrubs need formative pruning

For a good wintering, it is important to huddle the plant and mulch the roots with a layer of hay and straw up to 6-7 cm. Young seedlings can be completely filled up, which is especially important in the Urals and Siberia. In the south, such a shelter is not necessary, especially since Garden Treasure refers to frost-resistant varieties.

Important! On the lignified shoots of Garden Treasure peonies, several buds are formed, which will sprout next year. Therefore, it is not recommended to trim them.

Pests and diseases

Peony Garden Treasure is sometimes affected by infectious diseases of fungal and viral origin:

  • powdery mildew;
  • gray rot;
  • mosaic leaf disease;
  • rust.

The following pests can parasitize on a peony:

  • aphid;
  • ants;
  • thrips;
  • nematodes.

Therefore, in the middle of spring it is recommended to carry out preventive treatment with fungicides ("Vintage", "Maxim", "Profit", "Topaz") ​​and insecticides ("Biotlin", "Confidor", "Karbofos", "Green soap"). You can also fight pests with folk remedies - a solution of wood ash, an infusion of onion husks, garlic, celandine.

Peonies should be periodically inspected for signs of disease and pests.

Conclusion

Growing a peony Garden Treasure is possible with even minimal skills. The main condition is to place the bushes in an open, well-lit place, preferably on a hill where rain and melt water does not accumulate. By regularly watering and feeding the bush, you can wait for the first flowering 2-3 years after planting.

Reviews of the peony Garden Treasure

Nina Alexandrovna, 56 years old, Chelyabinsk.

Garden Treasure is truly a treasure, not a peony! I never thought that it could be grown in the Urals - it seems that all the exotic is grown only in the south. Despite the fact that this bush is clearly not from our latitudes, it takes root in Russia. The main thing is to actively feed with phosphates and potassium during budding and flowering (every 2 weeks). Another requirement is no shadow! Otherwise, it may not bloom.

Anna Viktorovna, 59 years old, Rostov-on-Don.

I always grew ordinary peonies, but then I caught the eye of the Garden Treasure, which was advised by the neighbors. He has a powerful, rounded bush with vigorous peduncles. Very large flowers, divine aroma. Young flowers have the most magnificent flowering - when they are 4-5 years old, literally the whole bush is strewn with buds. So you can plant in such a way that you constantly have gorgeous yellow flowers in the garden.

Andrey, 62 years old, Saransk.

Recently I have been growing an exotic variety of peony Garden Treasure. Of course, this is a very chic bush with spectacular flowers that go well for bouquets, and just decorate the garden. Care is not too demanding, but for the winter you need to mulch, cover well - there are unpredictable frosts. Very resistant to pruning - after an autumn haircut, it gives good powerful shoots, grows before our eyes. Flowers appear during August - in our climate, even before September, if it is warm and sunny.
