2013 Peony Blooms Very Late - Week 7

It has been a great peony blooms season this year. What ever rain we had during the bloom season seemed to be limited to one day or if there was more than one day of rain, the sun seemed to come out at some point during each day to dry the foliage - which is great! This is the least incidence of disease I have seen on my peonies in quite some time. So the weather and in particular, the rain, really does make a difference in the spread of peony diseases. The blooms in week 7 are just barely hanging on. Most of the blooms you'll find this week are some of the last in a cluster of blooms to open. However there is still some beauty to appreciate and savor before the peony blooms season is over for the year. If you're looking for some very late season peonies to extend your bloom season, these are definitely some of the latest blooming varieties for me. I hope you appreciated all of your peony blooms as much as I did!
