2013 Peony Blooms Early Mid - Week 3

Early Mid season Week 3 blooms are becoming more interesting than the Peony Blooms Early - Week 2 with some anemone types blooming as well as the intersectional (Itoh) types beginning to bloom. The weather has been much more cloudy this week and a little wetter. The temperatures have cooled and normalized back to spring as well, from their brief encounter with summer. However the lack of sunshine has made getting some gorgeous sunlit photos challenging at best. It looks like it is going to be rainy and cloudy for the better part of next week too. The foliage on all of my peonies has been pretty much disease free so far this year. I'm curious to see how the rain will affect the foliage and the spread of foliar diseases next week. I'm sure the blooms will be gorgeous anyway!

    1. Kimmie,

      Yes, Peony 'White Cap' is definitely a beauty. This is my first year growing it, and I am really impressed. It has had several blooms, and the fragrance is just heavenly. I just don't want to stop smelling it!!!
