My peony has also flowered for the first time but this one made me wait a full two years! Unfortunately I can't find the label and don't remember the variety.
This graceful lovely is Penstemon 'Apple Blossom' and was planted earlier this year. I bought another at the same time, 'Snow Storm', but that one is still making me wait.
I've also tried a new vegetable this year, kohl rabi. This one is Azure Star and was chosen purely because it looked interesting and was a nice colour!
Looks good doesn't it. Growing nicely. Swelling to maturity.
Until you look at the back.
The pellets saw off enough to allow this plant to continue growing. However, many of the critters survive...
