Hi Liz,

I added soil conditioner to the potting soil, as well as the composted manure and bulb food, and the plants did fine. My plants got too dry, when they weren't being watered, when it got too hot. They were fine in the spring when we were getting frequent rain.

Today, I found TP Banquet has gotten a little too happy, it's now putting out new stems in the fall,πŸ₯Ί and, these are so going to die when winter arrives!

Annette, I had a Themis tree peony that leafed out last Fall. It kept green leaves until it got consistently cold.

It leafed out fine this Spring, but hasn't ever bloomed. It was planted in 2017.

Since you are in a mild zone I think yours will be fine.

LG,

Thanks for the info! I may try protecting it, since I've only ever seen it bloom once.

I hope that your TP Themis blooms for you next spring!

Hello all, here's a quick update!

I've spent just about every day off working in the garden, despite our ridiculous heat! The temp was 99 degrees yesterday,πŸ₯΅, and I spent hours outside, with a lot of rehydration breaks! I've been replanting the garden all by myself!

These pics are from July 10th, just after I got my plants back.

Looks like you have it all under control, Annette! I tip my hat to you. I tip my hat to you. I tip my hat to you. Can't wait to see the transformation when bloom season comes around.

It's really looking good, Annette. Let's hope we have a more normal winter so everything can settle in.

Thanks Liz! I'm so happy that I've gotten so many of the plants into the ground! I'm am also looking forward to next spring.

I may have to move some plants around after they bloom, since I have quite a few lost tags.

My TP Banquet has continued to grow, and now Yumi also seems to think this is a good time of year to grow! D'Oh!

I also have several itohs that are putting up new growth. Must be another southern quirk for fall peonies already cut back.
