Ha! That one never gets old!! So we planted a few of these I guess like 2 years ago . . . but I do lose track of time. When break-up came though I though the "sticks" were toast-I mean that is all that was left was sticks. And then-a summertime miracle!! It grew fast and big quickly. Now did I know it was in actuality My Little Peony growing? I had not a clue, but thanks to great folks like Christina from Beaver Sports, i was able to identify the bloom. I had to clip this one off as it made the whole plant tilt over. And I really do think it's a beautiful Peony . . . which is a flower, not a horse.
