A relative gave me this peony stuffed in a garbage sack about 5 years ago. It sat for 2 weeks before I finally got it planted. It survived and thrived. I dug it all up about 2 months ago, potted up about a dozen starts and gave them all to gardening friends. It's a nice red peony but something about it just hit me wrong. I have limited garden space and wanted to make room for something else. It grew very happily here in Zone 5.
