;) I like that Maggie...............................would you like some??

Well,  I would, Chas, but my Boss the BD will tell me there is no room for more paeonies and he rules with a rod of bulbs, as you know! :'(
Very kind of you to offer though, I do appreciate that.  :-*

A little advice required please,my early windflower has now grown to large for the position I have it in,so think I will have to split it and move somewhere else,what do you suggest??...........................

Splitting is best done in the autumn, from August to October  :). If you split it now it will not grow well this summer, but it will recover though it takes more time (a year or two) than if you split it in the autumn.

My late-flowering P.obovata has flowered in the past week. It's flowers are quite small, but it is still nice in the woodland bed.

In the beginning of May this Peony flowered. I have raised it from seed collected in Turkey, and wonder if it could be P. mascula, which I think is quite common there ?

There are also two pictures of what I received through a seed exchange as Paeonia ostii, but maybe it's just a P. x suffruticosa. What do you think ?

Paul, I hope someone can identify your peony, it looks a very lovely plant. My P.masculas are young and haven't flowered yet so I don't have experience with that species and can't say about your plant.

Here's a question for Paeonia aficionados out there. I recently acquired a piece of a Paeonia delavayi. It was a small side shoot on a large clump, which when we tried to dig up we discovered ran back under ground to the main tuber of a nearby big one. Rather than disturb the whole plant we simply pulled this offshoot and it snapped cleanly away from the main clump. It has a few small roots on the underground section, which is quite long compared with the above ground section, but apart from that is little more than a cutting really. I potted it up quickly in a gritty mix. What would you say are the chances of this actually surviving and growing on? Slim to nil? 50:50? Fair?

Paul, long hairs on carpels and wide-elliptic or oblong, biternate leaves with some leaflets segmented, and collected in the area you describe should identify it as P. mascula ssp. mascula.

Beautiful plant! :)

Fermi ,

sorry to say ...but your P.kesrouanensis is wrong named  :-\
the flowers are to big ...and the typical sign for P.kesrouanensis is it has glabrous carpels ( similar like P.coriacea )

Hi Fermi ,

it is difficould to name a plants without informations from where it came :(

I'm sure it is something from the P.mascula complex ...

It could be ( MAYBE ) P. mascula ssp. hellenica or P.mascula ssp. borduri

P.mascula hellenica comes from the greek mainland and some greek islands
P.mascula bordurii comes from Turkey ....
P.kesrouanensis grows in Lebanon,Syria and Turkey ( but a total different area from bordurii )
I do not believe that your plant is P.mascula hellenica v.icariaca ...this is a extrem rare plant

What are think the others peony growers like Matt and Lukas and more ?

I hope thats help you a bit

Fermi, how old is your Paeonia cambessedsii and how big?  What kind of mix do you use?

Hi Anne,
I sowed 5 seeds in May 1998 in a 3" tube of potting mix with additional grit/coarse sand and they all germinated in June 1999; the only one I retained was planted in 2001 into a raised "rock garden bed" consisting of the "native" adobe clay ameliorated with compost and coarse sand/grit and topped with gravel. It had buds in 2005 but they didn't develop or were frosted off! First flower was in September 2006.
It's about 2 1/2 feet across and about 20" high (I haven't measured it exactly, though)
cheers
