Peony 'Dinner Plate', 'Dinner Plate' Peony, Chinese Peony 'Dinner Plate', Common Garden Peony 'Dinner Plate', Pink Peonies

Named for its huge flowers, Peony 'Dinner Plate' (Paeonia lactiflora) produces large, 7 in. wide (17 cm), perfectly formed, shell pink, double flowers, packed with silky petals. Resembling roses, they have a delicate fragrance and are elegantly borne on long, strong stems. Introduced in 1968, 'Dinner Plate' is a strong grower with a handsome lush foliage. Blooming later than most peonies, it will close with the peony show with a luminescent performance.

  • Blooming heavily in late spring - early summer, this late season peony will flower for approximately 7-10 days. You may want to plant other cultivars with staggered bloom times (there are early, mid and late blooming varieties) to extend your peonies season to up to 6 weeks.
  • 'Dinner Plate' makes excellent cut flowers with a long vase life (over a week) if cut in bud. Enjoy a magnificent bouquet of pink peonies at home!
  • Reliable and vigorous, this herbaceous peony grows in a lush, bushy mound of glossy, deep green, divided foliage reaching up to 44 in. in height (110 cm) and 24-30 in. in spread (60-75 cm). The foliage remains attractive throughout summer until frost and often colors up in the fall.
  • Enjoys full sun or part shade in rich, fertile, medium moisture, well-drained soils. Peony plants grow best in full sun but will tolerate some light afternoon shade. Provide a sheltered location. Staking may be required as the large peony flowers tend to arch toward the ground and may be driven to the ground by hard rain.
  • Deer and rabbit resistant but attractive to butterflies!
  • Virtually pest free. Watch for honey fungus and peony wilt.
  • Very useful and adaptable in the garden. Perfect as a specimen plant and in groups for borders and beds, city gardens or cottage gardens. Ideal for bordering a walk or driveway and as an informal hedge. Plant your peonies away from trees or shrubs as peonies don't like to compete for food and moisture. The enchanting peony flower combines beautifully with roses, bearded irises and other perennials in striking color combinations.
  • Low maintenance. Remove spent flowers as they fade, then cut back plant after the foliage has died down in fall. Long-lived (peonies may live up to 50 years!), the plants do not need to be divided and can be left undisturbed for years. Peonies do not respond well to transplanting, so choose your planting location carefully.
  • The best time to plant peonies is in early fall, so they will have time to become established in the soil before winter. They do not flower the first year of planting, and may take up to two years to produce their showy, fragrant blooms.
  • All parts of the plant may cause stomach discomfort if consumed.

Peonies are a classic ingredient of the perennial border and have been in cultivation for over 2000 years. Beloved for their abundant blooms, the beauty of their exquisite flowers, their delightful fragrance and their bold foliage changing shades over the seasons, peony flowers add a dazzling splash of color in the late spring and early summer garden. Virtually carefree once established, they live for generations, are deer proof and produce some of the best cut flowers - making them one of Nature's loveliest perennials! Peony bouquets are a favorite of florists and many brides-to-be. Why not enjoy a peony bouquet at home? Paeonia lactiflora or Chinese Peony is native to central Asia, from eastern Siberia through Mongolia to northern China.

A beautiful plant that ive seen growing in situ. Grows on bare lava and in pretty much any orientation!

Nice looking nearly stemless compeletely flat plant with a fuzz on the leaves. THis is a tougher plant for me and rots easily, unlike most of the other Aeonium species. Commonly used in pots in arrangements or by itself here in So Cal.

This is not an Sempervivum, at one time they may have been classified as such. Aeoniums are from the Carnary Island , we grow them in pots putting a rock behind the head of this plant so it will tip up and won't get water on the top. We do not water much in the summer months, and do keep it in partial shade. I do have the crested from, the pictures do not show it crested. It is in cultivation all over the world, where ever hobbest ive. Watch the snails they love this plant. Jack Catlin (Huntington Gardens) Hybrids uses this species as the pollen parent. He is strill trying to have a pure black maroon Aeonium tabuliforme
during his life time.

This plant is also commonly called saucer plant. It is a sempervivum and a native of the Canary Islands.

Rosettes usuali single but as you can see on photo occ. ofsetting (dichot) Has to be kept like in nature (vertical) on the rockwalls. Dosn't like to have water on the rosette.Leaves very dense forming a roset with diam upto 45cm. Leaves more or less spathulate, the margins with long cilia. Flowering stems erect, upto 50cm long, arising from the middle of the rosette. Plant dying after flowering.
Grows on Tenerife on several places : Teno, Taganana, San Juan, Bajamar, usualy facing the N or N.W. facing cliffs.

Indeed Crasulady 2 the Aeonium does not belong to the Sempervivum but to the Crassulaceae. It is a fact they belonged in the beginning of the 1900 (1946) to the Semperv. See An account of the Sempervivum group by L.R. Praeger. Till now it is still the best docume. read more ntation you can find. If someone know a more recent book on the genus Aeonium, Monanthes, Greenovia and Aichryson, that they let me know so that I can try to obtain it here in Belgium. I know there are a lot of new speciesn var. and formas so I will need new documentation to keep me informed on this genusses.

Crasulady, your friend who tries to hybridisate the tabuliforme with any other specie to obtain a black (marron) tabu, did he allready tryed with a dark A. holochrysum?? or a wel disigned A. ciliatum or rubroliniatum?? If he should be interested I can send him young plants from Tenerife. I am twice a year on Tenerife (april, may and the month of october). I am making a flora inventory for account of the local Government, you see.

About Dinner Plate Hardy Hibiscus

Dinner plate hibiscus is also called hardy hibiscus, perennial hibiscus, herbaceous hibiscus, giant hibiscus, rose mallow, and swamp rose mallow. The latin name for dinner plate hibiscus is Hibiscus moscheutos, part of the mallow family Malvaceae.

Dinner plate hibiscus plants are native to eastern North America. They’re now available in wonderful shades, from the lavender-blue of Bleu Brûlée Hardy Hibiscus to the giant, vibrant pink of Cherry Choco Latte Hibiscus! There’s a whole list of different cultivars/types of dinner plate hibiscus further on in this article.

Hibiscus moscheutos, commonly known as hardy hibiscus or swamp rose mallow, is a vigorous, sturdy, rounded, somewhat shrubby, hairy-stemmed, woody-based perennial of the mallow family. It typically grows to 3-7’ tall and to 2-4’ wide. It is native to wet spots (marshes, swamps, floodplains, river banks, moist meadows, and moist woods) from Ontario and Massachusetts south to Ohio, Indiana, Alabama and Florida.

Hibiscus moscheutos, Missouri Botanical Garden

Hibiscus moscheutos is a herbaceous perennial plant, meaning that the foliage dies back to the ground each fall, and then sprouting fresh new shoots the following spring. Hardy dinner plate hibiscus plants are one of the very last herbaceous perennials to break dormancy and sprout up in the spring. In my Zone 5 garden, the first signs of sprouts is often not until the end of May (or even early June).

Dinner plate hibiscus is almost always grown for its very large showy flowers. They look tropical, even though they’re hardy to frosty, snow-covered Zone 4! Hibiscus moscheutos typically flowers from July-September. Each flower only lasts a couple days, but a single plant produces dozens of flowers. Most dinner plate hibiscus have green foliage, but some modern cultivars do have deep purple or nearly black foliage.

“Its flowers span up to 12 inches wide, beckoning fliers of all types, and last from early summer until the first frost. Plant this stunner in rich, moist soil in a sunny site.”
