Peonies are a favorite for many gardeners. With their full blooms and enticing aromas, they are a great addition to the garden. This year we have the Peace and Patience Colourful Companion.

    I enjoy planting patio asiatc lilies bulbs like (‘Tiny Bee’ or ‘Tiny Padhye) or gallery dahlias like(‘La Tour’ or ‘Pinto’) with my anemones in containers. Then I tuck in a few annuals like petunias and calibrachoa for some instant colour.
