Despite the crazy weather, all my tree peonies did well. I was shocked! Hana Kisoi did this strange thing, and I wanted to know if others have had this experience. The tree is about ten years old, and has borne beautiful light cherry /pink flowers every year. This year I had the usual 10-12 flowers, but just as they were going by, 4 new buds began to open. They were beautiful, healthy, same size, but they were much darker than the first group, a lovely very deep cherry, clearly the same flower but a much darker version. Is this common? I've never seen it. By the way. I'm in zone 5.
