Dan is the man.

A little while back I was looking for help identifying a plant.  Well, Dan at Urban Veggie Garden Blog was one of the folks that said it was a peony.  Three weeks later…

Guess I didn’t do too much damage by chopping it down the last couple years.  These buds are three or four times larger than the buds on the other peonies.  I can’t wait to see how big the blooms will be.

Happy Gardening!!!

    Glade I could help out and thanks for the link. It is definitely a tree peony, another pricey garden item. They really are beautiful once they are full grown.

    You definitely called that one. Thanks.

    I’m going to try to transplant a couple pieces in the fall because it’s growing under a pine tree. Maybe I’ll be as lucky as I was when I transplanted a few pieces of the regular peony. It’s looking like it wil have quite a few blossoms this year.
