Benjy (what I name the peony) was planted in early November 2020 in my raised garden bed. I did not dig it as deep as it is recommended because we have milder winters here in metro ATL. Currently, Benjy is thriving and we hope to have him bloom next year!

They're thriving

I got this peony last fall and planted it soon after. It is not March and it is almost 10 feet tall. I cannot wait for it to bloom next year.
