I have three peonies in my garden, but only one is in bloom so far.
This is my Victoire de la Marne peony. It's a great deep redish purple color. Or as I like to say - dark pink.
I'm off to a barn sale today and a few garage sales. Enjoy your Friday and take time to stop and smell the peonies.
My first peonies were ones I bought at Monticello in Virginia. I now have 13! Here in North Texas they are not the most common plant, but it does get cold enough most winters to coax blooms for the spring. When it doesn't , I through bags of ice on the ground every week or so to make them think it is cold!
