My Peony Plant

Here's today's photo of a bit more of the budding peony plant. There are five buds on the plant, but only two visible in this photo. Lots of leaves! It was in the garden when I moved here which was 15 years ago. Wow! I didn't realize I'd been here that long!

I found a very interesting site about the care and cultivation of peonies, and was amazed to read that a peony clump can survive for 50 years, and that they have been cultivated in home gardens for more than 600 years!

  1. It'll be great when the buds open!
    Like you I'm surprised at just how long that they've been around! xx

  2. Hi Flighty ~ I think we'll need a bit of sun to help the peony buds open... it's supposed to warm up in the next few days, so I'll keep my eye on it. Yes, I thought there was a lot of information on that site. Thanks for your comment :)

  3. I think I am going to have to review my peony plants, I moved them, and now they don't flower. I was sure I had done all the right things. x
