plum peonies


I love the idea of peonies: big gorgeous fluffy heads bursting with color! in reality, mine had always fallen over and became infested with ants, so even if I wanted to bring them indoors I couldn't. but then I ran across these plum peonies this morning: standing erect despite the rain and looking gorgeous! I might have to rethink peonies...

  1. Peonies are notorious for falling over. I always have to put a hoop plant stake around mine. The ants help the peonies to open. It is an old tale. I looked it up one year to see why the ants always got on them. Your plum peony bloom is so pretty with the water drops on it.
