Some of the Japanese tree peonies with flower buds. They tend to make their vertical growth very quickly, and then leaves increase in size afterwards.
Some of them that are not as vigorous with much fewer leaves can still flower
The tree peony seedlings still aren't flowering yet, but the big one should start next year because it is bigger than some of the smaller Japanese tree peonies that are flowering.
The Kinshi in the background by the pot is probably the slowest species, but even though it's no taller than this seedling now, it will likely turn out becoming my largest tree peony because it has been in the ground for 4 years already.
This tree peony seedling looks like it needs a boost of nitrogen soon.
The itoh peonies are much slower than the tree peonies, but they should end up getting up to at least the same size if not bigger. They are still red which means that they are just getting started.
