Must be the "micro climate" that worked here to make "Sebastian Maas" thrive and bloom for me. I have five (5) of the same cultivar and they ALL have buds/blooms. FIRST SEASON.

Received from bloomingbulb.com end of Feb - early March 2005. 2-eye rhizomes.

I will definitely try to grow more peonies come fall. The foliage alone is beautiful!
