As I wanted to visit this exhibition all my garden works were postponed. I came to the opening at 11am to see and to take pictures without the large number of visitors.
Many species of Russian and world peony selection were presented and moreover, I could see the winners of world peony exhibitions. At this year's show I was especially interested in to learn about modern peony group ito-hybrids, which have yellow-orange dominating color palette that is unusual for other peonies.
In the new building of the Botanic Garden where peonies were exhibited, industrial refrigerators were installed so it was possible to demonstrate immediately all groups of peonies - as early-flowering and late blooming.
The first visitors carefully examined and photographed favorite species of peonies. The scent of flowers was so great in the halls that many visitors especially children wanted to smell them.
Besides of peonies in vases I liked the floral arrangements with peonies, leaves of hosts, asparagus, decorative grass, some perennials with small flowers. Also there one could choose a good gardening book.
Have you been to any exhibition this year? What did you liked there? Thank you!
