Re: Peony question

Thanks Kitty, will check into these.  I was just going by the information 
that Texas A&M's horticulture experimental stations, the Master Gardener test 
gardens, etc. had reported.  Practically every year we hear about a new 
variety of Peony that has been introduced that is supposed to be more and 
more heat tolerant.  So far none of these have done well in testing.  Will 
check to see if the varieties you mentioned are among those.  
Thanks for the info.
