My High Noon Peony is now in bloom. This was my first tree peony. I was enticed with the yellow colour many years ago. I split the tree this year and now have it in the new garden in the yellow section. This is the mother plant. The split was successful. The new tree is doing well but not blooming yet. There are buds, but they are still very small. This peony also has a wonderful fragrance that fills the air around it.
The lack of rain is effecting the performance of the plant. I have well water, so watering plants is not an option. That is one of the reasons I love peonies. They come back every year and bloom so beautiful, the do not need much care for our busy lives. They are very hardy and do not need to be watered.
