Today we’re catching up with Jewel Barkley.
The photos I have included are of my flower garden in Seagull, New Jersey. I have been growing peonies for about 10 years. Peonies are my passion, and after meeting Kathleen Gaggan, its passionate owner. Peony’s Jealousy In Bernardsville, New Jersey, I knew I had to try my hand at growing peonies! I actually had more peonies when I lived in Chatham, New Jersey, but I recently moved to Seagull, where I have a much smaller property and therefore fewer peonies.
Thank you for allowing me to share photos of my little peony garden, which still brings me so much joy!
Intersectional peonies are hybrids between tree peonies, which have woody stems, and herbaceous peonies that die back to the ground each winter. Hybrids have great vigor, and combine the wide color range of large flowers and tree peonies with the long-lasting blooms of herbaceous peonies.
