Thanks for starting this up, Currently I have a Japanese Tree Peony blooming with five of the six buds in bloom. It has lovely dark pink petals on opening that fade to a paler pink with a dark maroon centre. It is beautiful this year; my herbaceous peonies are just starting to bud. I have a double peony and single blossom peonies that I have moved many times. They originally belonged to my paternal grandmother and then my mother.
Good Luck with the blog.
PS One of the seeds I bought 4 years ago ( a tree peony) is about 2 feet tall and has a bud (very small). Krys
