Recent visitors to the garden have all asked me "What is that red flower?" before they were close enough to realize it wasn't flowers covering this bush.
They are making such a dramatic colorful statement in the garden that I bought a couple of red Salvias (Cherry Queen) to plant in the across the path from the peonies, along with some Japanese blood grass.
If you are not familiar with woodland peonies, they are different from traditional peonies. You can read more about them by clicking on Peonies in my category list.
