If you never have seen a tree peony, it is hard to believe how large and showy the blossoms are on such a stick like plant. I lost the magenta one last year due to garage construction and heavy handed workers (still sad). The pink one is blooming and it is so glorious!
On Memorial Day, I planted my pots and, of course, I ran out of plants as I have many more pots. I planted in the shade of the oak tree.
