With the 20% chance of rain/thunderstorms early on June 8th, we are calling it a green light for Peony Field Days on Friday! Looks like a beautiful day to stroll through our peony fields! Can you say peak bloom on the intersectional or Itoh hybrid peonies? Never before have we had all our available intersectionals in this peak of a bloom. Simply breathtaking.
Bartzella and New Millennium really popped with color during an overcast sky tonight.
Gordon E. Simonsin is putting on quite a show with his secondary buds just starting to bloom.
Callie’s Memory presented the shot I have been waiting for that represents its true coloration in full bloom.
White Emperor is just starting to bloom and with the overcast sky presented the warmer shade of white vs when I usually like to shoot white colors in full sun.
Finally Little Jeannie one of our new lactiflora seedlings, is showing off why its hybridizer, Roger Anderson, is considered one of the true pioneers in hybridizing peonies. We are looking forward to seeing you at Swenson Gardens Peony Field Days!
