First paeony of the year

Beautiful white peony nut cutlet! I've just bought my first tree peony. A yellow one that is only about 4" tall. Not sure where to plant it though. Full sun or abit of shade? in a corner of the garden? I only have a very average 30' by 30' garden and don't want its roots to eventually take over a large area. Any suggestions?

hi guys. Anyone know what this is ?  Got quite a lot of it in my mum's garden that I've inherited. Wondering whether to dig up or leave in


I won't be using the forum for a while

Getting back to the original thread (although all your comments have made me laugh!).  I seem to have entered the debate a little late. Why was the old format changed?  It was so easy to use and easy on the eye.  This one just wastes too much space, scrolling scrolling scrolling on my little mini iPad.  Did anyone ask the forum members if they wanted a change? A little bit typical of the age we live in I'm afraid.  Having said all that I will be uploading a picture in another thread of a plant I want id-ing so let's see how it goes

More ids please!

I've googled iris foedtidissima and you're right it does look like it. Didn't get the seed heads over winter though. Thanks cambridgerose and nut cutlet. Also vinca minor, not sure whether I can wait till it flowers it really has almost completely taken over one border. And looks really hard to get rid of.

I've got another one if anyone is interested. I spent the weekend digging up a big stand of cuckoo pint which was hard work. But nothing compared to this weed that's threatening to take over not only my garden but I reckon the planet too given half a chance. It sends out long runners and the soil is compact with it to 2 or 3 inch depth. Smothered everything so will jest have to clear the entire bed.

Doh! So Monbretia is Crocosmia. I don't think its that as I've got heaps of that coming up. This one was like that all winter

Thanks. I didn't even know that if you tapped on the Photos they loaded as a separate tab. And yes I use an iPad. Bit of a Luddite when it comes to the tinternet.

I've got a thing for agapanthus so I'm pretty sure it's not that. Could be a lily, i think it's grown from bulbs as I did pull up a bit. I'll have to google montbrecia. Never heard of it.
