Doesn't look anything like 'Guardian Angel' which Noreaster has. I purchased 2 each of these companions plants - Aquilegia/columbine Oragami yellow and blue because I already have Oragami red which I love. I also bought a fern leaf peony...the most I've ever spent on a plant that wasn't a tree or shrub.

Love your fern leaf peony. I have always wanted one but no place to plant it. Hope it does well for you.

Unfortunately, our peony tenuifolia has not bloomed in 2 years. However, the Snow Angel Heuchera delivers beautiful, deep pink blooms. I hope you have good luck with it. The leaves on Snow Angel looked like they were deer dinner, but it came back last summer like gang busters.

I bought 'Snow Angel' for its foliage. I was looking at heucheras online to discover that it has bright pink flowers. How dramatic is that!!!

I too bought it for its foliage and was thrilled with the flowers. By the way, there is no resemblance to Mystic Angel either.

Snow Angel and Marmalade have been sharing a home for the past two years, and I see that they are obviously ready for their own homes. As you can likely see, they are both readying their spikes for blooms. When I prepare them for their own containers, Marmalade will probably be ready to divide, but if I do so, the divisions will all stay in the same container. You can see the dark pink spikes on Snow Angel. This container has always been in a sunny spot except when the weather was exceptionally hot.

I was at sanannie's plant sale yesterday and bought a heuchera division from her. She has a lot of lovely heucheras and as we walked through her lovely garden I tried to identify some of her plants. What I thought was 'Hercules' she said was 'Snow Angel'. My 'Hercules' has not grown much but has produced one flower stalk this year. She said her SA could be doing better. It's my impression NOW that they both would do much better with more light because of the variegation.What cathy says above seems to confirm this.

Here's that fern peony in bloom after planting it in a very sunny location. The plant was thinned out a bit when an object fell on it breaking a couple stems.

The second picture is a tree peony, which almost looks gaudy compared to the subtle shades of hostas and heucheras.

Love your fern-leaf peony blooms.

If your Euphorbia (cushion spurge) were on the other side, it could have been my yard. For some reason my Euphorbia is half the size of last year's plant. Your tree peony is lovely. My blooms were large, but I got only one pink and red and had fewer blooms than usual.

Cathy, lovely bloom. The cushion euphorbia self seeded there.

I put 'Snow Angel' in morning sun. That's hosta'Little Treasure in the bottom left and I'm trying to see if the variegated aubretia will survive here before I plant any more. I've had success with it elsewhere but am bit doubtful about this location.

I thought you might like to see 'Snow Angel' in bloom and a second picture of 'Hercules' in bloom for the first time since I moved him into more sun.
