Lil Red Jewels


I do not know what the actual species of this Peony is, but of course I forgot to see if there is a marker. I believe it was purchased at a Leach Botanical Garden sale about three years ago. The seed pod is fascinating in form. So when I was cleaning up the front garden a couple of weeks ago I came across the two pods, I thought I'll save them and see what they look like inside when they open. The pods open the other day and here's what I found inside. Blood red in color! I'm not sure what the other little cherry colored things are. Seeds that did not form? Anyway I would love to save the seeds and propagate them, but it would take 5 years before they would be blooming size. Anyone else up for it?

  1. I am interested to propagate them from seeds.
