Posting these pics of a noid peony which is the least attractive to me but my wife always liked it best of all the fancy ones I have. I even had a complete stranger from our neighborhood comment about how much she liked that particular peony. I could have saved a lot of money if I had just kept all the divisions over the years and planted them. It is usually the first of all the common peonies to bloom and spreads like crazy. This clump is not really old but there is no date recorded when it was planted.

Jerry, your soil just intrigues me. It looks like sand. What is it really composed of.

The basic soil is a mix of bagged humus, mulch called hardwood fines, and some sandy potting soil. The sand visible in the picture is playground sand which I covered all my peonies with about an inch deep last fall. I used the sand for physical protection over Winter then brushed it away in the Spring. One of the side benefits of the sand is less weeds and grass around the clump.

The peony is beautiful and your wife has exquisite taste. Thumbs up

I also prefer single peonies. I would be happy to have something like your pink noid in my garden.

Last year I've got three noids; single deep pink, single white, and full pink. Perhaps I should post pics and ask the memebers to help me identify them.

I have 3 of these peonies and need to do some reorganizing and relocation. Check back after this spring's bloom. This peony is an early cultivar and spreads quickly. I will gladly share some samples with anyone wanting one.

Oldgarderose,

Thank you. I live in Toronto, Ontario, and sending the peony roots acrross the border would be a problem. We cannot import without a phytocertificate. I am so sorry, because I would really like to have a simgle pink peony. Sighing!

It looks a lot like one I called Dancing Butterflies, mine has no fragrance, but is a prolific bloomer that stands up with no support

It is similar to Doreen but it blooms first among my regular peonies. No noticeable fragrance. It was sold in packages at either Lowes or Walmart about 15 years ago labeled as Karl Rosefield (or Rosenfeld).
