Morning All 🏵 So impressed with this little one, been dug up and repotted twice since Jan and still she lives and gives me a beautiful flower 😍 (And also not a deformed flower like last year!!) Not the 'Sarah Bernhardt' that I bought, but at least now I can see that she is definitely 'Bowl of Beauty'. Have a fabulous weekend ☉☇☈ #peony #bowlofbeauty #summer

Afternoon 🌸 So, the big container this Peony was in collapsed after winter, I dug her out (accidentally damaging her roots quite badly) and as we were having to move put her in a small pot to see what happened. She sprouted, and we haven't moved, so dug her out and put her in a bit bigger pot, she carried on growing and now has 4 buds!! Have I just got an unfussy Peony??🤔

I'm so surprised this one has, was it's 1st flower last year and it wasn't the Peony it was supposed to be, I wasn't over fussed by it, so wasn't bothered too much if it didn't make it, but now I sort of feel she's earn her place by default 😂 @sieveheadsarah

Well, this Bowl of Beauty definitely ain't no Sarah Bernhardt 💖 Very pretty, but she has the most prized spot in the garden, sunniest and most sheltered, and Mum would love this donated to her garden, and I could get a more floriferous plant in her place? #peony

I have this one I got it from gardeners world magazine and it's hot pink like yours mine hasn't even got the lighter pink but in the middle. I bought 3 different ones from there and they all look identical (I posted a pic a few days ago) I think they are having us in and just give the same plant a different name to get us to spend more 😂

Morning Keely ☕ Mines in a big container with a Clematis, as I didn't know if would survive in the ground up here. Very pretty but I'm not sure if they flower enough to get the space, I could have 'For your eyes only' there instead @Keely
