I haven't watched or posted on this forum before but I'm going to start today. This is Howard and Dixie's shade garden. It has been well cared for and loved for a number of years. It is a real treat and inspiration to visit. Hope some one will see this and enjoy it......

How much shade do those peonies get? I have a well established single NOID that gets morning sun and afternoon shade and it always seems to be leaning toward more sun. I've divided it a couple times and have given the new starts much more sun. They stand up much straighter for me. Are there some that can tolerate more shade than others?

Edited to add: gorgeous photos and beautiful garden.
I want to live in a world where the chicken can cross the road without its motives being questioned.

Lovely garden.

Our peonies are on the east side of the house so get some morning sun (filtered by beech & oak trees) & shade in the afternoon.
