Wow Top, those stems are really reaching for sunlight. I hope they are sheltered from strong winds when you put them outside.

It will be fun to see if you gets blooms. How are the bottoms of the growbags holding up?

I also live this combination of red stems and green-yellow leaves with red tips in early foliage. I noticed that other hybrids of lobata (peregrina) have similar foliage: Mahogany, Ludovica, Quitzin.

I hope you will have warm weather so you can set your peonies outside, Top! Like LG said, they look like they want some sunlight. Can I ask what are the average high and low temps where you are at this time of year?

Finally some blooming action in my garden:

Some daffs are growing and with flower buds but probably won't bloom for another two weeks.

Very pretty, Karen. Quite a few of my daffodils got ruined my the very cold temperatures. Their stems bent over. Of course, there are many more that still look good.

Tiny Bubbles is precious.

LG, I would love to see your daffodils collection! I bought Perfect Lady because of your pics. And it was beautiful! I can't wait to see them again this year. The only thing is I wish it would increase faster.

So envious right now—the only color in my garden is the very top of an old red wagon that was left out there in the fall, completely buried in snow except for that rim of red! I think it'll be early April now before I see my beds

Nothing blooming but did see the first bud on a woody peony in my garage today! Sea of Tranquility but the pic I took was so dark you can barely see it, will try again tomorrow when there's more light in the garage.

Thanks LG! Love the pink shade on APricot Swirl! It is beautiful! Do you like Martha Stewart? Do the petals become whiter as the flower matures?

So glad to hear that you are seeing some form of growth in your garage, Liz! Hopefully, the bud will be a blooming bud!

Karen, I can't remember if MS turns white. She was still cream when I look Ike's at her today. 👍🏻

I just want to continue this thread into summer and fall because there are so many nice flowers to follow peonies once they are gone. People can show great combinations with peonies foliage as well.

Lupin is nice, but I am ready to cut flower stems almost to the bottom once it finishes flowering. Behind it Delpinium is almost ready...

Anya, do the annuals self-seed or you propagate and plant them later? I found some ( verbena bonariensis, cosmos, etc ) of mine self-seed and I do not need to do anything and some - zinnias, calendulas - I grow at home and replant in June.
LG, love the color of your seedling!

LG, I have never seen Japanese irises! They are pretty!

Alex, I grow almost all seeds indoors and plant in the end of May outdoors. Some annuals selfseed but usually they don't grow much because I disturb them when prepare flower beds for planting. Some perennials also selfseed and make it anyway Smiling

So much beauty is blooming in your gardens, Alex, Anya, and LG! What a treat for the eyes!

Your lupines are spectacular, Alex! Can't wait to see your delphiniums!

Your combination of poppies and veronicas remind me fondly of wild flower fields of the northwest.

So glad you posted your Japanese iris and crinums, LG! I planted some Japanese irises for the first time this year! Are they difficult to grow? How long does it take for them to bloom from the time of planting? Yours are very pretty! Love your crinums too but they don't grow well for me. I planted some years ago but they didn't thrive and gradually disappeared.
