So I bought a few at Trader Joe's. I also bought a few for my mother, last week, at Stop & Shop. Hers were white, to complement the iris with which they were paired.
If I haven't said already, our vintage peony out front survived the installation of a new gas meter (directly through it). Victor even thinks that it's healthier this year: taller, with more buds. It blooms nearly purple, when it blooms.
