What to underplant a peony with?

Posted: 18/06/2016 at 17:22

close, striatum. Could be a good choice, will cope with sun or shade.

To my eye that paeony is too 'trussed up'. They're big blousey plants and need to expand a bit.

Taphrina infection, it's a fungus. There are various species of taphrina affecting different plants in the plum family

Google taphrina or pocket plum for more info

New one on me so I did a search. After a boutique and some holiday cottages I found Magnolia acuminata, aka cucumbertree (all one word). Don't know why it's called blue, the flowers are yellow/green. Is this the one Denise?

It's a big tree and trees have to mature before they flower

I've always regarded them as biennial. A bit like foxgloves, you might get a half-hearted attempt at a third year
