Hi. Just wondering if someone could tell me what this plant is. Many thanks,
Peony by the look of it
It's a tree peony, but as to cultivar, Lord only knows. Ambrose Congreve?
Very bonny though HC, isn't it? Apologies, Rachel - I meant to add tree in front of peony
Many thanks, do you think this is a young plant then as it's only about 10cm high with two flowers.
It must be bigger than ten centimetres Rachel- that's only four inches!
Is it very near that hedge behind? It's quite hard to tell from the photo. You might need to relocate it
Hahaha.....sorry....was listening to my 80 year old mum in the background....she's sniggering now!!! It's about a foot high!
Tricky to tell its age as the environment affects it so much. However, if you haven't just planted it already flowering (!), they usually take a few years to produce flowers.
They can be very slow to flower as Bob says. Good luck with it anyway - whatever you decide to do with it. If it's right beside that hedging - it might not grow any bigger!
There's quite a few people here with tree peonies so they'll be better able to advise you on the best place for it etc
