My one tree peony bloomed two weeks ago, and despite no winter protection looked great.
The other one, looks healthy after I ripped out the part that was going back to herbaceous but did not bloom.
As the tree part seemed to be dying before, we will see next year how well it is doing.
My other peonies are just starting to bloom one or two but as a whole look much better than they did last year.
I have to raise up and weed, make the bare spot I try to keep them in larger, some this fall while at the same time some that were absent for decades are showing up; Dad said the yard was absolutely full of them when grandpa bought it seventy years ago. They eliminated, or thought they did, one half of them, but now they are popping up where I never saw them before to the point they are becoming a weed.
