  1. Beautiful Cee. Our neighbor, who’s house was painted the same blue as your parent’s house was, used to have a whole bunch of peonies by the line separating out property lines, along with bleeding hearts. Loved them in the spring with all the buds. The only thing I didn’t like is that ants were required to open his peonies, so we always had ant hills bordering the property. Round up around the house was a weekly routine through August. But it was worth it to have both of them every year. Good memories.

  2. How I would love to have a peony bush down below, but don’t think they are right for this climate. I get by on your photos of them. Thanks for that. This is the color I’d plant if I could.


      • “Peonies only grow in cold climates with cold winters and they need a long cold snap to break them out of their dormancy, but we just don’t get those conditions in the subtropics,” Found this on Google..


        • I know someone in Georgia who takes photos of them. But I Amy just said she can’t grow them in Texas. I’m thinking it may have more to do with consistent water. But that is a guess. I just looked it up they grown in zones 6 to 9.


          • While most Camellias are cold hardy to USDA Zone 8, meaning they will tolerate low winter temperatures of 10 to 15 degrees Fahrenheit, we now offer many varieties that are cold hardy as far north as USDA Zone 6, which has low winter temperatures of -10 to -15 degrees Fahrenheit.
