Gail:
The peony season has started here in Norfolk;

Paeonia clusii, in a pot till I decide best place for it...


Paeonia obovata alba which stubbornly produces just one stem a year.


and Paeonia decomposita - grown from AGS seed sown in 2017, which is quite fast to first flowering for me. It has a lovely scent.

I'm off to Greece on Wednesday - the third attempt at a Greentours trip to see peonies in the Greek Rhodope, so keeping everything crossed that a. I get there  and b. they are in flower!

Maggi Young:
Bon voyage, Gail!!

Very pretty! I really like the white flowers against the dark leaves. Are these dark leaves (Paeonia clusii) typical for the species or is this a particularly nice clone?

Have a nice trip, and I hope you see a lot of peonies and take pictures. :)

I think fairly typical, they do lighten as they mature and become a more silvery grey.

Thanks for the good wishes - I'll definitely take pictures, even if it is only of leaves...
