Pretty as a peach…

Mar 15, 2009

The three ornamental peaches I planted last year are all popping. They are each a double flowering variety called 'Peppermint'. Blooms appear in shades of hot pink and white/pink stripes. They are the fascination of my 1 1/2 year old neighbor, Madeline. And the other neighbor, Lonnie...who is not so much 1 1/2 but who nonetheless gets all giggly like a little girl when new things are blooming in my garden. Delights for kids and not so much kids alike! Purrrty.

Wow, that hot pink is really something! Your trees are really going to be show stoppers when they grow up.

I know…even as small as they are, they draw lots of attention. The great thing about peaches, both fruiting and ornamental, is how fast they grow. Almost instant gratification!
