  • This plant has grown up from a failed tree peony. I expected the blooms would be unremarkable, and planned to remove it to replace with another tree peony. Never got to it, so was pleasantly surprised to see these blooms. Thought others might enjoy. 20190519_16373620190519_16371720190519_163635

  • As with anything it seems there’s a difference of opinion.

    For instance, customers purchasing peonies can only select from those which are available. Importing is an option, but even that becomes cost-prohibitive to a point.

    While I will likely never be defined as someone who purchases peonies (or anything for that matter) by choosing the…[Read more]

  • Hello,

    The peonies I grow in my garden don’t have any support. I only grow peony varieties that don’t need support. So I cannot add much to the discussion. Several of the lactifloras need support, Sarah Bernhardt amongst them and it is a widely grown one. But you could easily choose a variety with stronger stems (The Fawn for example). Same thing…[Read more]

  • Hello Everyone!

    I’m sure everyone is excited about their emerging peonies at this time, but soon some of them are going to need support.

    My topic is both question & discussion about use of peony support in the residential garden.

    What percentage of people are using support cages/rings/etc vs. using nothing at all?

    Where I live in Finland,…[Read more]

  • Some site statistics for those interested. Statistics are collected through Google analytics since nearly one year, otherwise it’s difficult to know whether you’re reaching some people or not. One gets a lot of information from this, no wonder they make a lot of money from ‘targeted advertising’ (mention: we have no intention of showing adverts…[Read more]

    I’ve now spent the entire day surfing on the internet, studying web pages in Ukraine, USA and finally Japan.

    I got as far as to Daikon-island in Japan, next to the city of Matsue, and a garden there called “Yuushien”. On their web page I found information about the tree peony ‘King of Flowers’, which has been cultivated by Saburo Watanabe on…[Read more]

    Well, I’m glad it was helpful.

    Thumbs up that they grow well. The description from the Ukrainian site gives frost hardiness up to minus 30°C, which is quite hardy of course. But long ago when I  studied as an exchange student in Kobenhavn, I used to know a Finnish girl and when I once remarked that it was rather cold she told me at her place t…[Read more]

    Koen, you Beaut!!! First you say you know nothing about Kao, and then you proceed to give me  information about it,  not from one but three different sources! =)  Yes, this is absolutely the same cultivar as mine, and as long as no-one calls it COW, I’m fine with any other spelling… I will definately look up Martin Pages book, but since I am es…[Read more]

  • khurtekant replied to the topic Tree peonies in the forum Species 4 weeks ago

    Hello Heidi,

    I don’t know anything about that suffruticosa cultivar specifically. The Chinese and Japanese suffruticosa cultivars are more often than not unregistered with the American Peony Society (APS) which has been the International Cultivar Registration Authority (ICRA) since 1974. If you go to their database you’ll find several more common…[Read more]
