Tree Peony Blooms

What's that big maroon flower in the middle of the nursery?

Maroon flower? Can you show... Ohhh, it's a tree peony.

That's an actual conversation from the weekend. 

Since we don't sell peonies anymore it's easy to forget that there are 'big maroon flowers' [they're actually more magenta!] in the middle of Wildwood Nursery.

Peonies reward patient gardeners with massive blooms.  Sleep [year one] creep [year two] leap [year three, flowers!] as the saying goes.
