RE: early arrivals - tree peonies

It is part shade, Ceres, but faces south.  It is shaded a little early
morning, catches a good deal of early to mid-day sun and then shaded a bit
again in the afternoon starting just before the full "heat of the day."  It
has plenty of room to spread if we are only talking 3-5 ft wide, and I had
read they could get to 5' tall.  I was worried that the info I had was
incorrect or my little tree peony was in a bad spot.  It is now about 2'
tall and with leaves, about 18"-2' wide.  There is a large maple to the west
of it and a number of young walnuts (though old enough to bear fruit) to the
east of it, hence the part shade.

It is such a lovely jewel in the yard!  I look forward to its blooms every
year and make sure I have film/digital media available.  The only problem
last year was that by the time I left for work, it was dark and when I came
home from work, it was dark.  (Much harder to take photos in the dark!)

Bonnie, the purple one is probably 3 x 3 and the yellow 2 x 2.  Mature size 
can be  4' - 5' as I have read.  I have not actually seen one.  Is yours 
located in part shade?
