I have grown tree peony years and every spring I pollinated the flower from same plant, pollinated same flower or different flowers but never had any luck. I have asked many gardeners if their tree peony ever seeded, the answer is ‘no’.

So I thought it must be like some plants which do not accept its own pollen. That means hybrid/cross breed 2 different plants is necessary! And I experiment this, the seed pods are now baring seeds! 🙂
See previous post when both tree peonies flowered.

問過很多種牡丹的花友是否看過牡丹結子,答覆都是否定的. 我自己人工授粉多年也從未看過成功發育的種子. 今年我嚐試將之雜交,’芳紀’的花粉x’連鶴’的雌蕊,現在在種莢末端開一小口觀察種子發育狀態,結果是成功的! 這個實驗說明牡丹必須異株授粉.
