Paeonia anomala has an immense range of wild habitat, stretching from the Ural Mountains of Russia to the Pamir Mountains of Central Asia, then to the Mongolian Gobi Desert and the Tien Shan Mountains of Kazakhstan.

P. anomala bears large red flowers in early summer and much divided foliage. The divided foliage turns orange in the fall, earning the species name "anomala" due to these unusual characteristics.

In garden cultivation, it requires full sun and well drained soil. [1]
