Tree peonies finally making some good growth for 2014

Ever since May, it looks like most of the tree peonies have started to take off, and many of them have flower buds which should start blooming in about 3 weeks.

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.


  1. Love your posts about tree peonies. You must have a HUGE garden! (They are the potato chips of the plant can't stop at one.) Interested in corresponding, maybe trade seeds in the fall if all goes well. I have an unnamed pink, Phoenix white, Renkaka (young), Yao Huang, Xiang Yu, a couple Tibetan tree peonies, and maybe two that I remember right now because they haven't bloomed yet. I think one is Kamatanishiki from Tree Peony Garden, but I can't think of the other.

  2. Hi I love your posts. Any update on the tree peonies? I'd love to know how they are doing. Thank you.

    1. This year, I'm getting hundreds of flower buds on many of the larger in ground ones that have been in since 2012. Some are producing over a dozen flowers this year. Here's an example of one of the larger ones.

  3. Unfortunately there are a lot of AIDS/Herpes denials on Herbal cures still out there. I did research on them after I was tested HIV/Herpes positive I was so worried am I going to die soon. I continue my search again on herbal remedy for Std, then I found lots of testimony on how Dr Itua Herbal Medicine Cured HIV/Aids, Herpes Virus,Copd, Hepatitis, Diabetes, On websites sharing their testimonies, which made much more sense to me. All the authors pronounce Dr Itua As a man with Good Heart, I pick interest in their testimonies and I contact him about my situation then he gave me procedure how it works, I proceed after one week he courier his Herbal Medicine to me and instruct me on how to drink it for two weeks to cure. I receive His Herbal Medicine so I drank it for two weeks as I was told then after 2 days I go for a test I found out I was cured from HIV/Aids & Herpes Virus, I pay homage to him 2 months ago to his country to celebrate with him on his African festival which he told me it usually happens every year. I know there are lots of (HIV)/Aids&Herpes Virus denials of Herbal Remedy movement the same few doctors and they represent a very small faction of the community. I could have died because I refused Natural Herbs Cures for so long, but luckily, by the grace of God I am alive to tell my story.
