I came around the corner of the house recently as I was working on cleaning up beds only to be surprised by this. What is it!?!?
Thankfully it still had the tag on it - oooooh yeah, I picked up a dirt cheap tree peony on end-of-season clearance at the garden center last year. I've grown peonies, and love them, but never a tree peony before. I totally forgot I'd put this plant in. It's a little out of focus while I still figure out a new camera app on my phone, but it's definitely attention getting - interesting color and shape. Can't wait to see what it looks like this year.
