The herbaceous peonies are pretty close to blooming in Tiger Gardens but not quite. In their stead would you settle for the herbaceous peony's cousin-the tree peony?
I promise it smells just as good as herbaceous peonies.
It stands a little taller and straighter than herbaceous peonies.
The 'trees' don't usually hold as many flowers as an herbaceous peony but the few flowers that bloom on a tree peony have something special about them that herbaceous peonies don't.
You might not be able to tell from the pictures but the difference is huge when admiring tree peonies up close.
The blooms are about twice the size of herbaceous peony blooms!
And what a sight to behold! Hang in there the herbaceous peonies are on their way soon but for now enjoy the tree peonies....
