2019 Peony Blooms Week 2 Early

I must say it has been a bit more challenging to snap photos now. We've also had some heavy rain this past week too. A few of these were pummeled in the heavy rain, depending on which day they opened. I can't tell if I got a great bloom on Tree Peony 'Yao Huang' or not yet. I'd like to see how it does next year as well. The P. Rockii Lavender Seedling's color was gorgeous again this year - it did not disappoint. I'm not sure if Tree Peony 'Sahohime' is the correct variety or not, as it doesn't match the photo of what I purchased it as, but I'm not sure what the correct photos is for this one anyway. However it is a lovely cultivar whatever it is and I am pleased to grow it. Tree Peony 'Shimadaijin' is a gorgeous dark purply color that really draws you in. This was the first year that Tree Peony 'Lavender Hill' bloomed for me, since the buds have been blasted by last freezes in the past, and I must say I was quite impressed. The color of Tree Peony 'Angel Emily' really surprised me this year. Maybe I don't have it's color memorized completely, but somehow the color seemed a bit more rich and maybe slightly more pinkish.
