2015 Peony Blooms Week 4 - Mid

If last week was mild with just a few early bloomers that survived our bud-blasting late freeze, then this week was an explosion of all kinds of peony blooms. It seems like lots of peonies are in bloom together this year since we started late, and they are all playing a bit of catch up. I'm not sure if we'll have a Week 7 this year. We'll see... This week we started to get lots of variation in bloom form and color. We had singles, semi-doubles, bombs, anemone, and full doubles all blooming this week. There was something blooming in all of my peony beds this week, and that doesn't happen most years. A couple of late early bloomers were still out with our mid season flowers. It was nice to see so many peony blooms flowering at once!
