Chinese tree peony bloom 2014
June 3, 2014 by Cricket Hill Garden
The Chinese tree peonies bloomed about ten days later this year than usual. Needless to say, once they began they were even more breathtaking than we remembered. Our Japanese and Lutea hybrid tree peonies are still in bloom, with some still very tightly budded. There are still weeks of peonies to come this spring so we will be posting more as the blossoms open.

We consider this tree peony to be one of our most promising seedlings. We grafted it for the first time last fall and hope to offer it for sale in a year or two.
When working in the garden, we frequently get lost in the flowers….
