Hi, I'm Polly, and I live up in cold upstate NY, where we get about 200 inches of snow anually.

I was very lucky to have a friend who had to build a retaining wall, and offered me the peonies that were in the area the wall was being built. I don't have IDs on the ones I received, but there were about 20 different cultivars, old and new.

I have since purchased a few named cultivars and species.

The scent just fills the house, I love it.

Thank you for starting this forum. I'm sure I will be a regular.

A nice place for me to learn more about these peonies.
I have about 30 of them scattered around the yard.
Some named, some over 30 years old and some mystery ones which I purchased last fall and the names were all mixed up.

Welcome Caroline and Polly. Hurray! Nice to have you both here.

Caroline you definitely should post some pictures this summer when they are blooming and maybe we can help you find some names for those mysteries.
