Here is a link to my column in today's edition of The Spokesman-Review: A peony for your thoughts. As you can guess, it's about growing peonies, which I think are one of the most beautiful plants we can have in our landscapes.
Right now, our tree peonies are in bloom (see previous post) and they are just stunning. The photo above is one I took of a herbaceous peony at last year's Northwest Flower & Garden Show over in Seattle. There are so many fabulous cultivars to choose from.
