What could this purple reddish plant be?? Please help!
Hello. We just bought a house last fall and these two plants popped up in the yard. Kind of awkward placement but both in line with each other. I cannot seem to figure out what they are though I have a couple ideas. Please help if you can!
Possibly a Paeonia. Common name Peony.
Wow you're right!!! I never thought of that the leaves look just like peonies. Do you know why they are so purple? Is it a tree like peony? Hmm thank you soo much!
Sorry, I have no idea why they are purple.

Questions On Peony
Quote from it....
Q: We have established peonies. This spring nearly all of the plants have red leaves instead of the normal green. Some of the plants have their normal green leaves. The leaves are a bright, light, red color. Could this be a fertilizer problem? (e-mail reference)
A: I doubt this is a nutrient problem. More likely it could be related to the cultivar of peony and the juvenility of the foliage. If the peonies don't green normally in a couple of weeks and it doesn't look like they are going to produce any flowers, then something else is causing this problem because I don't know of any mature red-leaf peonies.
Thank you! I have since found a couple more randomly placed peonies in the lawn. :)
