2013 Last Peony Blooms of the Season

While cutting back some spent blooms today, I found these last two blooms of my peony season. (This would be like Week 8!) They are from Peony 'Kelway's Glorious', and it is just that - Glorious! I am so happy to find these last two blooms. I cut them and brought them inside right away and put them in a vase. I placed them on my mantle so that I could enjoy them next to our wedding cards. While cutting back this particular peony I also found several peony bombs on the ground. These are just peony blooms that never fully opened and just fell off the plant. Yes, it is true that sometimes late season varieties do not open here in this southern growing climate. However, that won't stop me from trying to grow them anyway. I had more than a few that did open on this bush, and as you can see I did get a few more that opened at the very end. So it is definitely worth it to grow this very late season variety, Peony 'Kelway's Glorious'!
