I love mine. No matter how much I neglect them, they just keep doing their thing, year after year! I think I might have baby bunnies living under mine this year unless the momma bunny decided not to have them there. Hope they're safe, where ever they are!

Oh, I finally know what those beautiful flowers are called! I've seen them around and have always thought they looked other-worldly. This one is gorgeous! Like tissue paper, only better.

Love the tiny accents of red!

My new house came with two small peony bushes, but I don't think they get nearly enough sun or water where they are. Peony season is well over here, and neither of them bloomed.

Nine years ago I transplanted two peonies from my front yard, where the tree had clearly expanded its canopy, into my backyard.

Shade generally only reduces the flowers, but the buds being set too low in the ground will stymie them. You might want to get to know the neighbors and see if they know if they've bloomed in the past.

(I'm suspecting that you are much more southernly than I am.)

I'm in Illinois, less than an hour north of the Kentucky border. Technically we're zone 6b, but most years it's more like gardening in Tennessee.

The previous owners are friends of ours -- I can ask if the peonies ever bloomed for them. If they've been there for decades and soil has built up over the crown, would that have the same effect as planting them too deep, I wonder? There wasn't a single bud on either of them.

Possibly. I've never seen that happen, but every garden is different, and mulch happens.

I was fortunate that the white peonies bloomed the very next year after their fall move many years ago. It took more time for the magenta to recoup.

btw, you might be far enough south to need to concern yourself with assuring afternoon shade even for full sun plants.

So pretty! It's just about winter in the southern hemisphere and it snowed in the hills yesterday. So it's nice to see some spring gorgeousness.

Very pretty. I have one blooming today, which is quite a bit early to the usual timing here.
