This is the first year my peony bloomed...I was simply ecstatic! I've had it about 5 years....DH bought it for me for an anniversary present.
This one is in the back yard, I have another one in the front yard. The front yard one was gifted to me from my sister, when they were expanding their driveway or something they dug it up, and I took it. It had a bud last year, but didn't bloom. If I was a *real* gardener, I would have tried to figure out why. lol
