Tree Peony

My tree peony is only  2 years old   . When I bought it only about 6 inches high. I have pampered it every winter with a burlap blanket ... this year I have been rewarded with  4 giant blossoms and the plant is now   1 and 1/2 feet tall.....


Bud




Slightly open




Fully open 



See the rain drops....  a wicked  thunderstorm went thru last night,  we had a deluge of water, yet again .
I did save the name of this  peony but can I find it right now?   No.

I tried to baby a tree peony, but apparently my techniques were smothering because it died. I love yours, so gorgeous. Another thunderstorm? Sigh. I love rain, don't get me wrong, but this year it's just getting to be way too much for us, just like last summer, we're squishy beyond belief.
