By LizinElizabeth on May 23, 2015 5:29 PM, concerning plant: Peony (Paeonia 'Nosegay')

This is a very tough little peony! It started opening just before we had a very heavy snow storm this Mother's Day, followed by several nights of below-freezing temps. Most of the other varieties had some damage, but not Nosegay. I highly recommend this variety if you live in an area with late spring freezes.

By GardenQuilts on May 23, 2015 10:49 AM, concerning plant: Rose (Rosa 'Orchid Romance')

I just bought this rose from Home Depot. Blooms are fragrant, peony-pink colored, and old fashioned. They age to a lavender-pink.

Star Roses is marketing this as a "floribunda romantica." Very confusing marketing, but a nice rose.

I am glad to see more Radler roses available locally. IMO, this rose is much nicer than the ubiquitous Knock Outs.
