It blooms! Woo Hoo!! And just look at how BIG the bloom is!!
And durable. This bloom is a week old & has endured rain several times. Bonus!
I know Peony as an old-fashioned perennial. There are several in our garden. But Tree Peony? Doesn’t the name sound exotic?? They’re a recent discovery for me.
in February 2012 I bought one from Joe Harvey, a local fellow who develops new varieties of peony. So, this ‘tree’ is still a baby. I’m impressed it produced a bloom in its 3rd spring.
Now I’m excited for the future….
How much longer will the bloom last?… How tall will the ‘tree’ get this year? … Will there be more blooms? … Will the deer leave it alone? (The baby deer are arriving in the garden these days & they’ll usually try a taste of anything.)
So many questions. Always so much to learn. Isn’t gardening grand?
