HB - unlike herbaceous paeonies that die back to a resting bud at ground level for the winter, tree paeonies make a permanent woody framework (like a shrub). This particular one is now about four feet tall, but some will make double that.

Yours would 'fit' my colour scheme better than my yellow one - could we swap, please? (LOL)
