Peony Tulips



I brought home a bouquet of peony tulips, a variety I've never seen before. It's a proper marriage I think because tulips and peonies are such close companions in a blossoming spring garden.  


I panned out so that you could meet my other photography assistant - my dining room mirror! She stands in when Mike isn't home to assist but let me tell you that she's not nearly as fun to 'work with.' I have to keep her clean, she only works during certain day time hours and her conversation is always quite bland. 

Hubby is much more perky and requires much less maintenance.

  1. Love the post. Yes I have never seen that variety either. Lovely. The color is so vibrant and it looks incredible against the white. My peonies will be opening soon. I can't wait. My favorite flowers, next to lilacs and roses. Oh, it's tough loving so many lovely things.

  9. I have not seen those either! I love my peonies! We had virtually no winter this year, so I had very few blooms.

  17. Trina, I've grown these for several years and they are always much admired. The also last exceptionally well as a cut flower. I have had good luck with the bulbs I have purchased through http://www.bluestoneperennials.com, but their offerings change every year....and I noticed that they don't have much of a selection right now. Maybe they will get more bulbs in stock before the fall planting season.
