Garden: Grandma's Gift - Pink Peony

This was a well-traveled peony bush! It was taken from cuttings back in 2005 from a bush in my folk's yard, that in turn had come from my Grandma's yard in Wisconsin, more than 35 years earlier.


The bush is now over 4' across and almost 4' high. This blossom was so large (almost 6" across) and so exquisitely 'pink'. The bright green foliage contrasted beautifully, due to being a bit cloudy that day. I liked it so much I use it as my screensaver.

Very, very pretty. Mine has not bloomed at all this year, but still looks healthy. I live in Toledo, OH zone 5. Any ideas of why it may not have bloomed? Thanks, Kathy
