Always a pleasure

Each year we hope that the Chinese Wisteria will bloom simultaneously with the Tree Peonies. This year we've been rewarded once again and the combination is breathtaking.  Wisteria requires specific types of pruning so one doesn't get excess vegetative growth and if the rains are too heavy the tree peonies shatter. So far so good and our efforts come to fruition.

Tree Peonies

On a side note the flowering season seems back on track, although the laurel looks like Memorial Day and the herbaceous peonies about the same time. Back to the planting boards...
