Rebloom on Tree Peony

There is a flower bud on my High Noon Tree Peony! I am super excited! I have heard of rebloom on Lutea hybrids but I do not think it would happen with my High Noon tree peony as it is only in its second growing season. For some reason, in early June it shot up a new branch that literally grows 2 ft in a two month period and then a flower bud. Do you think the cool weather has something to do with this?

Congratulations!
High Noon is the most famous reblooming tree peony.

That it wonderful, Kousa!!! Make sure you post pictures. I got High Noon this spring specifically because of the reblooming possibility but mine's teeny, growing well though. Looking forward to seeing your new tree peony bloom in August! Wow, peonies in August, who'd've thunk it???

Here is a pic of it showing how tall it is. All this growth took place in a two and half months period. It maybe about 3ft tall.

Here is a closeup of bud. Looks like this branch is suffering from chlorosis.

Hi Liz! Not yet, but it is getting bigger. I think it may open next week. I will post a pic when it opens. Maybe the azomite and the cool weather help to make this bloom happen. I am considering to get more Lutea hybrids to grow. I remembered reading somewhere last year that a different variety Lutea tree peony bloomed for a member on Daves Garden

That's wonderful, Kousa! Love, love, LOVE the fact that a peony, any peony but especially such a beautiful one, can bloom in the late summer! Hope it does it for you every year!
