Bowl of Beauty Peonies-Part Two

In this case the sequel is even better! I'm joining Fertilizer Friday and Pink Saturday with this post. I mentioned that the two twigs I bought in a box from Walmart produced different flowers, I believe this is the "real" Bowl of Beauty peony - just spectacular!
The really fun news is, they bloom a couple weeks apart for an extended show!
As they open up I'll add more pics.
Have a happy day!


  1. I am waiting for mine to bloom! Hope the look as beautiful as yours do!

  2. Peonies-JOY JOY they are my absolute favorite. Beautiful.

  3. I am doing peonies for Pink Saturday and Mosaic Monday. They are absolutely one of my favorites.


  4. I really like 'Bowl of Beauty' peony... especially because they are shorter and don't generally flop... the ability to stand on their own has become a basic requirement for me with any new peony investments! Larry

  5. LOVE your peony but am looking for information as to where they are "happiest" planted. I have a Sarah Bernhardt that has never bloomed...but I'm sure it's not happy with me.

  6. Hi!
    Very pretty! My Peonies are just budding. Hopefully I'll have blooms this week as it's suppose to warm up. Have a great day!

  12. Those are really pretty. I have never seen peonies as pretty as those. You got them at Walmart? I think I am going to have to go and visit Walmart really soon. Now, where to put peonies....

  13. Your peonies are gorgeous. I've never tried them. I'm gonna have to try some.

  14. I have never seen a peony like that at all, so lovely!

    Happy Pink Saturday.

  15. Your peonies are lovely. Love the color. Happy Pink Saturday

  16. Good morning Lynn, I am trying to fit in some visiting before I leave for the plant sale. Thanks for your comment and identifying my flowers. I know you are correct. Some garden club member huh? HA!

    Your peonies are gorgeous. My mother always grew them in her 'picking' garden. She grew flowers to pick for the house. Peonies were my favorite flowers to pick and they made the most beautiful bouquet. We had lunch at a French Cafe yesterday and there were two huge bouquets of them. Pinks and white. I needed my camera. What kind of blogger am I? sigh!

    Happy pink Saturday.
    Hugs, Jeanne

  17. Hi, Lynn!

    I love peonies more than anything. They are perfect for Pink Saturday, too! Speaking of which, I hope you are having a happy one!

  20. Beautiful peonies, and I love your pig theme.

  21. They are absolutely gorgeous! I planted Bowl Of Beauty year before last. It didn't bloom last year but I figured because it was new. Now it is showing no sign this year either. I'm just sick as it looked so pretty in the picture. Now, seeing yours, I know it is!

  31. Hi Lynn!
    I'm meeting a lot of Lynns today!
    I adore peonies! Yours are so sweet! Mine are quite big and heavy blossoms and it ALWAYS pours the week they open and they are laying on the ground and I must shake each and every one off to get them to stand up again. But peonies are worth it
    Thanks for sharing your pinkies!
    Lynn :-)
