Tree Peony Is a Star of May Garden

  This tree peony is the star of my May garden.
For the  first time ever, it gave ten flowers. It is a record so far.
I like the simple elegance of the flowers.
It's a pity that flowers don't last longer. But, even an expectation of a tree peony blooming is a thrill!

Last spring's late frost killed the peony buds. Maybe, because of that, it is doing its best this year.
 The white splashes on the flowers' trim are pretty:

Well, this is the end of a wonderful display. I need to fertilize it soon after the blooming ends and then just wait for next year!

If you need general information about tree peony classification, planting and care, I'd recommend this site:
 Tree Peony Garden.

    Wow, Tatyana your gardens are simply gorgeous! Love that peony... Thank you for sharing on Weekly Top Shot #33!

  22. Beautiful! I love how the tree peony looks with the Japanese maple. I hope my tree peonies look as good one day!

  23. We have a tree peony very similar to yours that bloomed for the first time last year and again over the last few weeks.... but nothing close to ten blossoms! What a magnificent tree you have!

  24. So pretty! Love that color!!!! Thank you for sharing over at this weeks Garden Party! I am so curious where you are located??? xoxo, tracie

  25. WOW! What a beautiful star it is! I am so jealous - we are just a bit too hot for peonies, even though I have a few in my garden just in case! ;) Loved seeing yours. I would be camped out there day and night so I wouldn't miss a second of these gorgeous blooms!

  26. Tree peonies certainly are thrilling aren't they? And worth the effort. Your pictures are very nice!

  27. How simply beautiful Tatyana. I love it. I have a little one but its leaves always dies in the spring and it doesn't grow well or bloom. After seeing yours I think I need to move it to a better spot in the garden maybe. Do you do anything special for yours?

  28. Stunning a garden of dreams. I love your pictures!!


Thank you for stopping by and for your comment! I appreciate your time! See you soon on your blog!
