So two weeks ago purchased two potted peonies at North Haven Gardens for 37 buks a piece. They both had buds on them. Lats weekend I ended up breaking off one of the buds as it looked like it was going to drop off and I expected all the others to look the same. Well 2 days ago I was very surprised by 2 gorgeous blooms.
Inspecteur Lavergne is a bomb type peony and is supposed to be an early bloomer.
Festiva maxima bud below doesnt look too healthy either. Wait and see if it blooms
