Another delicate color. Peonies were not common here until recently. Today they have become the darling of brides, I believe this is due to their use in confectionery for wedding cake decoration.
At the moment I am waiting for the peony seedlings to appear in the flower shops. Here they bloom in May and June, but so far I have not found any.

Very pretty ...

I've never thought of growing a Paeony in a pot. I thought they grew very big so have never bought one. After seeing this maybe I'll have a go.

I would never have done it either, Hywel, but as my son & daughter-in-law bought it for me what else could I do? Nevertheless I suppose it will last a couple of years in the pot I've put it in &, if it survives, get a bigger pot then & repot it.

What else?

See who else is growing Paeonia lactiflora (Peony).

See who else has plants in genus Paeonia.
