I started adding peonies in my garden last year. I ordered some from Adelman's and bought some from local nurseries. I have a couple of Itohs, Kopper Kettle and Yumi (previously known as Yellow Doodle Dandy), a lot of herbaceous and a few tree peonies. My favorites are Yumi, Buckeye Belle and Duchesse de Nemours.

Your Going Bananas and Cora Louise are very pretty. Thank you for starting this thread and hope others will share pics of their favorite peonies also.

Yumi

Three of my favourites are Cora Lousie, Kamata Fuji (tree) and Do Tell. Do Tell is very floriferous, has a great scent and a long bloom period, and the blooms, as well as being lovely, are interesting because they are all a bit different. Kamata Fuji is young, and I have only had one bloom so far, so I can't comment on the plant habit, but that one bloom is my favourite.

Just jumping in and adding my two cents. I can not even begin to actually name my favorite. I really love Red Charm and Liza Lundy. I added sevearl this year and also can not wait to see them bloom. Here is a picture of a NOID red one that has been around for awhile and divided a few times. Love the Bomb types, but also love the single pale yellows. Will add a few more including a peony that was also given to me, do not know its name either.

Here is the picture of Eliza Lundy, sorry for the spelling.

A single pale yellow given to me several years ago. Any suggestions?

How can I have forgotten "Green Halo".

I have more species that I can count, mostly tree peonies and I find beauty in having all different colors and forms.

What I find even more rewarding is when tree peonies break out of dormancy, and unfold their reddish leaves, especially when they are grown from seed. They are about the first plants that come up in the spring, and having lots of seedlings of various ages can be very beautiful.

Hi guys. New here. I have been wondering if these are peonies at all. Bought a new house when it was covered in snow so I didn't plant these (obviously). What do you think? Either way, they're beautiful!

RE: favorite peonies?

Also, just for fun, here is a picture of some that I actually know are peonies!


 o
RE: favorite peonies?

The first picture the blooming plants are tulips. The nonblooming appear to be scillia

RE: favorite peonies?

Your picture of the NOID looks quite similar to Red Charm, but you say that you have Red Charm, so I assume there are differences?

RE: favorite peonies?

Mantis: Sorry for the delay in posting. I will see if I can find a picture of some Red Charms in my yard. Need to go back thru some sd cards. The large one I posted as NOID from my mother seems to have much larger blooms even though I have them planted in the front yard and soil is the same and sun and water requirements are equal. Will post in a little while.
