I was curious, having not seen this breed of large flower heads prior. The folks that grow these gave me the name, and yes, they are peonies, a special species. Did I write it down so I would remember…NO, but this is a peony!

    Aren’t they amazing! A very hearty plant. I just learned that this was my dad’s favorite flower. My sister placed these at my dad’s grave over the weekend. I do question why we did not have these in our yard growing up??? Beautiful capture of this flower!

  • They are amazing, perhaps ants were why you did not have them in the gardens…they bring them out in groves!

    Although I’m no great shakes at botany, in the U.K,. peony roses are common in June. Therefore, I’m familiar with that type of rose which you have captured beautifully!!!
  • Actually I found out this is a Peony Tree. It has a regular trunk verses a herbaceous root system. Thanks so much!
