We’re always overjoyed to see the woodland peonies blooming in the gardens….and the ladyslippers, oh my! These plants are available in the nursery, come check them out!
Like a collection of smiling faces – beautiful. 🙂
These are real show stoppers in the gardens…not to take away from the beauty of all the other wonderful plants…but they are pretty special.
Is the white peony the same species as the magenta? How much shade do they take?
Both peonies but different species, the white is japonica, the magenta flowered one is banatica. Species peonies prefer half a day of sun but are best suited within the woodland where they are out of the hot sun. We also grow to other species peony…obovata alba , veitchii, and a great buttery yellow flowered peony called mlokosewitschii. Earlier to bloom, all of them. then the traditional herbaceous peonies.
Those lady slippers are magnificent. Nice article in the BDN Denise. It topped my email headlines this morning!
The lady slippers in the gardens always get repeated visits from us……can’t let them come and go without lots of stops to gawk at them! Thank you, Brenda….I guess the actually article will print in Monday’s paper. happy gardening to you!
My woodland peonies and my lady slippers (Phillipe), both I purchased from you, have gone gangbusters this year! Phillipe will have 7 blooms this 3rd year in my garden! So handsome!
So glad your lady slipper, Phillipe, is doing so well. It surely makes us happy when a special plant like this goes out the door and performs so well. Enjoy! Enjoy! Enjoy!
All spectacular! Lady slippers always make me think of my childhood with fondest memories. Xx
Lady slippers are the ‘bells of the ball’ as one might say. Quite stunning. Difficult to propagate,but worth the effort for us and so many others who come to purchase them.
very, very dry here….desperately need rain…watering through the night to keep things from drying out. How’s things??
