WOW – that is a spectacular peony! I’m so envious…..
thanks – BUT, you should have seen the ones at the RHS flower show – blossoms as big as a two fists. Mine have always been puny. I did get some advice (use tomato fertilizer as they are setting bud) and the result are these – better than before, but nothing like the ones at the show.
even small, the color is lovely; nice light and shadows in this picture.
How beautiful! I have heard that in order to flower well, they need a nice cold winter. In Oregon, we had to put ice on the ground where they were planted for about a week if the winter was too mild.
Hmmm….that might explain why they did very badly last year and much better this year when we had a cold spell over December
Such a beautiful peony flower – 牡丹花!
Thanks for adding it to Magnificent Peony! 牡丹花
