Suffruticosa tree peony with the following characteristics: semi-double flowers, bright purple colour, delicate scent, medium height, upright shrub. Very early flowering. After flowering, the leaves take on a distinctive bronze colour, turning red in autumn. The flower, normally purple, in some rare cases can be pink and purple or even just streaked pink. The same plant can produce different coloured flowers. This makes it one of the best loved varieties in China.
