Crimson-flowered Peony
- Paeonia monticola -

by John Sims and S. Edwards, Sansum



This elegant botanical print originates from the Curtis Botanical Magazine, an extensive collection of  botanical artwork with a publishing history of more than 200 years.  It’s founder, William Curtis (1746-1799), was a trained pharmacist living in London, whose greater interest was the study of flora and insects. He created a large Botanic Garden in London, where he grew beautiful exotic plants, and began publishing the Curtis Botanical Magazine in 1787.  Accompanying each remarkable color illustration of ornamental plants in the magazine, are notes on taxonomy, cultivation methods and other useful information.  A copy of this text is included with each purchased print.

 The Crimson-flowered Peony earned its right to be classified as a separate species due to the number and form of its capsules as well as its foliage.  The bright crimson color of the flowers was first noticed by older Botanists.  It is considerably more tender than the Common Peony, hence Zone 8 recommendations for ideal growing.
