GB Foliage Follow Up: tree peonies

Peony's leaf buds in snow, March 2016, Stuttgart, enclos*ure

The garden beside the 18th century Spielhaus of Hohenheim University’s Exotic Garden has a number of mature tree peonies. Like red corals, their new leaves are emerging now.

I took these pictures yesterday while it was snowing.

Because I really haven’t been gardening here in Stuttgart, for this year’s Bloom Days and Foliage Follow Ups I will record the flowers and leaves of this nearby, very pretty perennials and woody plants garden.

Thanks to Pam at Digging for hosting Garden Bloggers’ Foliage Follow Up the 16th of every month.

If you were with me
We should need no light
But peonies.
