The Peonies are just starting to bloom in my garden. I have found that the white ones bloom first, then the dark pink and lastly the light pink. I have mine planted around the Flowering Crab Apple tree. Growing up Mom had the Burgundy colored ones around the house. I think I will need to order me some of them next year.
The Peony is named after Paeon, the Greek god of medicine and healing. Colors - White, Pink, Red, Magenta, Burgundy, Peach, Yellow and Coral.
