This guy came through our just barely below 0 F. winter with the top of it's #5 pot sticking out of the mulch, as did several other intersectional peonies I scooped up on late fall close-outs. Repotted over the week, it sports a dozen primary buds. More broadly this suggests that peonies with good foliage might make good container subjects. I suspect that the plants will tend to be right up at 36" in good culture. The secondary buds do make attractive blossoms significantly extending the season.
