Our tree

Kinkaku  We planted this one this year. I can't wait to see it bloom! But it will be at least a year or two.
First year it bloomed. I am very pleased with the color!
Shimadaijin  It is even more purple in person! This one I bought as a 4 inch boxed plant at a garden center here. It grew faster then I thought it would.
Very pretty pink. This one does sucker as it isn't on it's own root. But very nice plant.
This little girl looks over the garden for us!
Rhodie decided to bloom! After about 7 years and one move to see if he was happier in a new spot he rewarded us with about 8 blooms. I told Jeff to be patient, but even I was getting discouraged after a time though. Glad we waited it out. I don't like to just get rid of something though if we have room for it. Unless we find it INVASIVE!
Shima-nishiski  I got this one out of order!Almost forgot to include it!  Our oldest tree peoney. This one is getting strange as it reverts back to all red on some branches. Makes for an interesting plant though. The top ones are all red/white. The bottom one kind of alternate around the plant.
This is a dwarf tree Jeff bought yesterday.
Horstmann's Silberlocke Korean Fir I love how the needles circle the branches showing their silver undersides. Sorry for the sideways picture. :(
There is so much in bloom right now! Jeff laughs as he knows where to find me! Out there walking around with my camera! Have a great day. Hugs, Teresa


  1. Beautiful peonies! They don't grow here in the desert. I love the colors of yours. Thanks for sharing these with me.

  2. I just love that you have surrounded yourself with so much beauty. The flowers here in Florida are starting to get a bit limp as it is getting so hot. I hope you have a really wonderful weekend, and thank you so much for your kind words.

  3. Wonderful, wonderful peonies. I have had no success with peonies (tree or otherwise) and will confess to a little jealousy about yours. Our tree dahlias are out at the moment and are a joy. I expected to lose them before this because we have had frosts, but they are still blooming in profusion.

  4. Peonies are such beautiful showy flowers! And I love the little girl that watches over your garden! She's lovely!

  5. Breathtakingly beautiful peonies...oh my are they lovely.

    Such a array of color, makes me want more and more acres of land to be planted with them.
