Please excuse the high-noon photos. Here is a New Dawn in my city yard, with the last of the Sarah Bernhardt peonies, screaming for color contrast. What can I say? Life is short and the art is long.
And here are a pair of William Baffins in my vegetable garden. They have a really nice yellow-pink color and a great country look, but, man, are they taking their time climbing those arches. Year three and still at five feet.
