Hi folks, I came in here a couple of months ago complaining my 3 year old peony tree had never flowered. Well, she must have heard me moaning about her because she has delivered!!! :). I have lost the ticket but when I bought it I understood it to be a deep peach colour, however it is more of a deep lemon. I have included a couple of pics. Is anyone able to identify this one. The centre colouring is a deep red. The pics don't do it justice.
Kind regards

What a beauty!

I think she maybe "Oukan", the leaves looks more like "Oukan" than "high noon".

She will performs better if you plant her on the ground (in autumn) instead of in a big pot.

Hi littlebin, I've just had a look on images and it definitely does look like Oukan, so many thanks. I'm a bit worried about planting in the ground as it is just solid chalk here and to be honest unless I planted it in part of the lawn, which I wouldn't be keen on I don't have a lot of planting space. Would it be advisable to put it in an even bigger pot? ..... Lol I can see you rolling your eyes to the sky
Kind regards

That is a really pretty combo! Blue pot contrasts nicely with the yellow flowers. I have never been successful in growing anything in a pot. You do a fantastic job!

Gorgeous!

Hi, averil, bigger pot surely helps. But your beauty looks happy right now and maybe does not need to be transplanted so soon, you can do in one or two years later. Remember peonies can only be transplanted in autumn.

Littlebin, thank you for your great advice. I will leave her awhile then and repot in a couple of years and I will do it in the autumn. Thanks to all
Kind regards
