Peony Bud

Posted by
Steven (Chicagoland, United States) on 15 June 2020 in Plant & Nature and Portfolio.

The word "bud" to me sounds like something small, when this bud is more like the size of a fist. This is not your typical peony. This intersectional peony is a hybrid of the herbaceous peony and tree peony. The tree peony has woody above ground stems that remain throughout the year, much like a small shrub. The leaves, however, are deciduous and fall each autumn. Herbaceous peonies die back to the ground each autumn.

Peony bud spotted in the garden on May 16, 2020.

That's huge, Steven, if it's the size of a fist. But you sure know more about them than I did. How fun to learn.
