Tree Peony Blooms 2015

This year is definitely the best year so far for blooms, and they should get better from here on out. Here's a sample of what I have.

Some of them are grown from seed however those all tend to be pretty boring single blooms, nowhere near as impressive as the known cultivars. The do appear to however carry more vigor than the other ones. I will likely dig those out and replace them with more impressive plants.

  1. This winter when I have time, I want to spend some serious time reading about your tree peonies. Hope you got a look at my one and only this year! It's a stunner!

    1. It looks pretty impressive. That's just about the size of my older plants. Loosening out the soil around it, and adding in a good layer of compost/ manure seems to give the following year a good boost of growth.

  2. Give them more time, young tree peonies tend to have single blooms, some will develop into semi-double or double when they ages.

    1. I guess the 1st one which is magenta looks like it has a pretty good chance of developing more petals as it ages. Perhaps it takes a few seasons for mature looking blooms to appear.
