Peony in "single red"

Ok .. I will confess I have this plant tag some where in the house .. with last years bargains, but I am bone lazy right now .. long morning. I just like the way it is back lit with the morning sun .. the leaves look elegant and graceful. I have no idea if this will flower since I just planted it last year .. and yes .. the flowers are single red ones .. I vowed if I planted peony, that it would be so .. not to droop badly when it rained or got wet. Imperial Red ? Nippon Beauty ? ... Big SIGH !

Love the lighting in this photo. I need more peonies! They are so elegant and yet incredibly tough.

Wonderful photo Joy. I believe it should grace you with at least one flower (mine did the first year). And then the next year it somehow got in the way of my lawn mower lol. My woody peonies have displayed their rich show of spring blooms and totally outshined the poor little soul, to that point that I was oblivious of its existence.

Violet ! You ran over it with the lawn mower ? aahhh ! poor thing ! .. I don't know what this little guy will do but I know there are magnificent fern leaf and tree peonies that are spectacular .. so yours must have been amazing !

Amy ... I'm hoping this is a tough one .. it is in a tough sun bed .. I'm not sure what will happen with it .. fingers crossed !
