First paeony of the year

Posted: 07/05/2016 at 12:57

I don't think mine is ludlowii. It's a seedling from one that looked rather different, (dead due to getting swamped by Viburnum rhytidophyllum so no chance of ID for that one).

I have a red one which may be delavayi but I think the flowers are to small. 

I also have a sort of blotchy orange/yellow one which seeded from the red one and whose parentage is suspect

The more flamboyant plants in gardens are all aliens.  I don't know how you could tell in advance which ones would become an invasive nuisance in the UK

Yes, I think all the Loniceras do that though.

I love it, it's getting a bit swamped between a bamboo and one of those purple weigelas. I'm having the weigela out, don't like it. 

The bamboo can stay, I'll just cut some stems out

I don't know what mine is. I've lost track of what seed came from which plant.

None of them look like the parents.

Thanks Ladybird, I thought it might be that and then changed my mind for some reason.

Has anyone got an idea re this lonicera? Flowering now, bush type not climbing.

Bought many years ago as purpusii, obviously isn't but I've never got round to ID.
