Central Plains Tree Peony Hybrids This title is used to describe those hybrids produced in China and elesewhere which do not have Peony rockii genes. Until the recent opening up of China, the great bulk of Tree Peonies available, other than ‘lutea’ types, were these. Sometimes called suffruticosa hybrids they originate from the so-called ‘Central Plains’ regions of China and have colours ranging through white to red to very dark red. The flower form is widely varied.  The hybridisers of these plants are not usually known, since many were created under Communism and only the name of an horticultural institute is quoted.
