2013 Peony Blooms Early - Week 2

Week 2 of my peony bloom season turned out to be much more colorful than Peony Blooms Very Early - Week 1, with lots more varieties blooming than the week before. Peony 'Lavender', my favorite color of all, bloomed this week too. Also some fuller varieties with more petals per bloom starting blooming this week as well. The peony bloom season seems to build slowly, starting with only a few colors and petals. Over time the range of colors and the number of petals per bloom just keep increasing and increasing. What an amazing show to watch! I hope you're enjoying your peony bloom season this year (or excitedly anticipating it) and don't let it pass you by. Sometimes it can be easy to get caught up in your day to day life and forget to enjoy the abundance and beauty of nature right outside your door!

  1. Lustrous is a very pretty true red peony. Does it really look this red? Can I ask what camera do you use to capture this bright red color so well?

    1. Kimmie,

      Yes, Peony 'Lustrous' is really that red. It is an awesome peony, and I'd definitely recommend it. Also I use a Nikon D60 camera.
