We planted our first peony plant last year only to have it not bloom. :( But this year we were greatly rewarded - looks like we will have three blooms this year! The plant is still young and small but it is so nice to see the flowers! I walk out every day just to stop and smell the blossoms. :)
I ordered two more peonies from Spring Hill that just came in the mail - will need to get those in the ground here soon! But probably no blooms on those till next year either. They are white and pink or white and red - gorgeous!
It is so fun planting things I remember being in our yard growing up - so far I've been able to check off quite a few things off my list including - bleeding hearts, daffodils, rhubarb, peonies, snowball bush, mint and lilies.
