    So I managed to overwinter my tree peony again, and this year it will have three blooms. Hurrah! I planted it in 2007 and it only bloomed one other time for me, in 2009. It smells delicious. Did I mention the blooms are enormous?

    Congrats! Where did you get your tree from? (spring is late up in Calgary; my chinese tree peonies bloomed back in April).

    Nice to see they can be grown so far north! They do very well here in Ky.

    This peony is not hardy here. I cover it in mulch for the winter and this past winter I also protected it with a little Styrofoam rose hut.
