I just popped in to look over some of my old pics here and much to my own surprise this peony is actually blooming right now and it don't look anything like this anymore, I know its the same plant but the center of it is totally different now. It looks like a hugh carnation that is bigger than your fist. The center of it can't be seen anymore because it is sooo full!
So was this pic just the proof of a "young plant" or do they all start out this way and then change?
I'll try posting a pic of it tomorrow, (not sure I can't post since I am not a paid member anymore though)
but I'll try it.
