No, these have been taken over the entire season. Our growing season is later though, so this flowered at the beginning of July. There is actually a
market for peony farms up here in my area since they bloom here at the height of the wedding season, June and July. It's gorgeous driving past the
farms when they are blooming. This is my first blossom that I coaxed out of a nearly dead end of season sale bucket at a box store. It's been there
for five seasons now. I was so excited. I still haven't convinced my husband that we need any kind of full on farm yet, but I've been working on him,
hehe. For now it's mostly increasing our current veggie yield.
Oops, and my growing zone is 4a or b depending on the year. We just have a much shorter season than you with sunlight on steroids in the summer time.
My final frost date is June 1 and my first frost can come as early as the end of September.
