It’s good to share good things with you
guys on FB. I came back from holiday today. And I got some nice pics for
you. In the past several days, I went 3
cities: Xi’an, Hanzhong, Baoji in shanxi province. Most pics were taken in Hanzhong. It is truly
a pretty city. Very very clean and beautiful.
The first two pics are Clover (Trifolium
Clover (1 leaf) stands for pray;
Clover (2 leaves) stands for hope;
Clover (3 leaves) stands for love;
Clover (4 leaves) stands for happiness and
May 1st is coming soon. We Chinese
are going to celebrate the holiday and have three day off. I heard that some
traditional European countries consider it as a national public holiday, but in
only some of those countries is it celebrated specifically as "Labour
Day" or "International Workers' Day". While countries like
united states celebrate Labour Day on the first Monday of September.
What about you? Are you going to observe
this holiday as well? Where do you live in? which peony?
I am going to Xi’an to spend my holiday. I
will share pics with you once coming back. Have a nice holiday.
may doubt that his or her Japanese Tree Peony Shima-nishiki
- Dao Jin do not show like red-white petals. Some people said his Shima-nishiki
flower is all red, not any white petals could be found. So he was concerning
that somebody sold the wrong cultivar to him.
this is normal. Shimanishiki is the bud mutation of
Japanese tree peony Taiyo. Due to a different growing
environment and management, not all the Shimanishiki will have the same color,
red and white. According to the records of statistic, some are all red, some
are red and white, some are red and pink, also others are pink and white.
his tree peony is Taiyo when he saw all the petals are red. Pls put this idea
is rose form or lotus form. 1 plant can produce several different tinctorial
flowers. florescence is at the end of April.
Lutea also named P. delavayi var. Lutea, P. potaninii var. trollioides, it is bush shape. And it grows to 1.0-1.5m, canopy to
about 1 meter. The new leaves are cyan, 20-25cm. the spire is green-yellow. Hard
petals. Early blooming, about in the end of April and the early May. Slight aroma
of the flower.
It is mainly distributed in the hilly area
of limestone in Kunming, Dali, Zhongdian of Yunnan province, China.
We put a satisfactory end to spring selling
of Tree Peony of Gansu Zhongchuan Peony Nursery. Only 1 batch of shipment, 31
orders delivered to US, UK, Latvia, Italy, Czech Republic, Russia, Canada, Norway,
France was arranged on Feb. 10. Almost all the orders were shipped successfully
without any delay, except some European countries requested payment of tariff,
and 1 order to US was delayed by American heavy snow.
To: tree peony new buyers in last fall and this
If you plant a new tree peony in last fall, 2014,
or in this spring, I guess it’s time for you to pick off the top buds of your
tree peony, thus enabling your flowers to grow better and better in the
following years, and have enough nutrition to keep its root getting stronger
There is an old saying about tree peony in China, “
never give life up, even though give flower up.”
It was written by martin page, an excellent peony
breeder and expert. It was published by Timber Press, Inc. in 2005. There are
12 chapters, mainly talking about the history of peony, peony types, also some
peony breeders and so on. I have to say
it is truly a wonderful book. I learnt a lot from it. in china, we are quite
familiar with Chinese species and Japanese species, while not knowing ITOH
peonies. after reading this book, I know some original itoh hybrids, like “bartzella”,
“border charm”, “callie’s memory”……. Actually, I am more curious about these
flowers’ name. when I saw “first arrival”,
a romantic scenery came into my mind. The breeder of this type must be very
astonished the moment he saw a lavender-pink flower standing in front of him.
Some day in the future, I have to try some itoh
