Peony ‘Sequestered Sunshine’

peony sequestered sun3

I posted a few days ago about Itoh Peonies, hybrids of tree peonies and herbaceous peonies, and promised I would post about others as they began to bloom. I have five in the garden and they are all two years old and are flowering for the first time this year. This is ‘Sequestered Sunshine’, an American (Anderson) introduction registered in 1999. It has bright yellow flowers with red stigmas and is a semi double though my flowers do not have many petals but that could be to do with the age of the plants. The flowers have a red flush at the centre and are sweetly fragrant.

    It looks really nice, especially if it has more blooms in future years. A bonus if it has a perfume. Your border is looking great. Your lupins seem quite advanced.

      Yes the lupins are doing well despite the snails. They are in their second year now.
