We arrived home last night from our trip to Oregon, where we enjoyed some outstanding gardens. But the weather last night in northwest Indiana was so Pacific Northwest-ish: cold and rainy that we felt as if we were still on vacation. I missed very few peonies; most seem as if they were waiting for us to return home.
|Peony 'Exotic Sunflower' took 4 years to bloom, but it has a nice fragrance.|
|We missed 'Roselette', which bloomed the day we left,|
but enjoyed 'Roselette's Child'.
|It's obvious how this peony got its name: 'Abalone Pearl'.|
|'Paladin' practically glows amidst its coral companions.|
|Two coral varieties: in the foreground is 'Coral Sunset' with 'Pink Hawaiian|
Coral' and a 'Paladin' in the background.
