I listened to tapes on pruning and propagating various annuals and perennials. Now if I can remember... I snipped this age-old rose via years 1965 transplant from Chickasha, Oklahoma to OKC.
And here it stands.... next to a replanted Peony that was planted on the front of this home at least twenty years back by my parents!!!
I wondering how to BEST re-nourish and encourage this unusually pretty color peony. I learned that the front of the house (facing north) has begun to receive less and less sun-shine. My neighbors plants have grown and shadowed the NW portion of house more-so. I wasn't learning or paying attention 6-7 years ago.... but just 2-3 years ago I noticed that there were fewer and fewer blooms.
I kinda don't always know the best sun patterns, soil needs.... or fall/spring preference... or root patterns to transplant. And then I split the plant. Geesh.
My life with my plants !!!
I also clipped my annual purchase of geraniums -- spent limbs are easily snapped. This pretty unusually tri-color pink white -- I potted into a larger pot yesterday in hopes of enjoying blooms all year!
