Late Midseason and Late Season (Week 5 & 6)
May 22nd, 2018 – Very warm and temperatures remain in the upper 80s and lower 90s. The flowers are opening fast and several bloom weeks are occurring at the same time. Late Midseason double flower form varieties such as 'Mons Jules Elie', 'June Rose, and 'Old Faithful' are flowering. The best display of flowers is at the display garden (old farm). Potted peonies are available at the new farm.
Midseason (Week 4)
May 18th, 2018 – It is very summerlike. Temperatures are in the upper 80s and lower 90s. We are now experience near drought conditions. If we do not get rain this weekend we need to install the irrigation system early this year. The peonies open very fast. Midseason double flower form varieties such as 'Red Charm' are flowering. The best display of flowers is currently at the display garden (old farm).
Early Midseason (Week 3)
May 14th, 2018 – Spring turned summer. Temperatures are in the upper 80s. The peonies open very fast. Early Midseason varieties such as 'Pink Vanguard' are flowering and as of today the first Mid Season varieties show very advance bud stage. The best display of flowers is currently at the display garden (old farm).
Early Season (Bloom Week 1 and Week 2)
May 9th, 2018 – the weather has improved, the peonies are growing fast. Although there is some frost damage to the foliage and to some flowers. The very first varieties are starting to bloom. Peony 'Roselette' is the first peony this year to show open flower.
May 2nd, 2018 – the plants are growing and the very first flower buds are visible. Today we had some needed rain; the temperatures are optimal for the peonies. Due to the late frost we expect some damage especial to the flowers. However, if the weather remains similar to what we have right now we should see the first blooms open by May 15th. This is about 3 weeks later compare to “normal” years.
March 24th, 2018 - first shoots visible. It is still cold and night temperatures consitently drop below freezing.
