Re: early arrivals - tree peonies

Klehm's Song Sparrow says that herbaceous peonies bloom in Wisconsin's Zone
5a from mid May through Mid June and in other zones, within a few weeks of
this time period.  Thus, I would deduce that they could have as much as a 5
week bllom span from early to mid to late-blooming varieties.

They go on to say that Tree Peonies bloom before herbaceous peonies.  In the
midwest, they begin to bloom in mid-May.  However, they also classify their
various tree peonies as early, mid, and late bloomers, but without an
explanation of how many weeks that might span.

It's possible that Ceres has late-blooming tree peonies and early-blooming
herbaceous peonies, while Auralie has early-blooming tree peony varieties
and late-blooming herbaceous ones. Except that......they list Gay Paree as a
mid-season bloomer and I found a listing elsewhere that Festiva Maxima is an
early bloomer.

And, of course, zone, location, exposure, etc, may play into it.
Interesting to note the differences.
