Peonies in Bloom Part 2
This is the second part of “Peonies in Bloom”! I could have stayed all day at the Swenson Gardens to photograph all the beautiful blooms.Who knew they came in so many varieties? The color combinations are just spectacular! The best thing about these peonies is that they don’t flop! Yes, they stay upright even when in bloom! The varieties marked “landscape” have foliage that looks great all summer long. Their website is full of helpful information about everything to know about planting them in each zone. They list colors, varieties, bloom-time, and show each flower opening up!
I learned that they don’t need a lot of water. They are not like perennials and annuals where they need to be watered often. Simply let the rains water them. They do need 8 hours of sun, however, so they don’t do well in shady areas.
Be sure to check out Peonies in Bloom part 1 for some hints about growing these beauties!
On with the show…..
Have you ever seen a yellow one?
One thing about growing peonies is that you become an instant flower arranger! There’s not a bad way to put a bunch together! These new varieties don’t get ants all over them so feel free to bring them in the house to enjoy!
Don’t these pictures make you want to plant some in your garden? I am not compensated in any way for this post. I just think Swenson Gardens grow and cultivate the very best. This fall, I will be planting some in my garden that don’t flop!
Thanks for stopping by to look!
