    Beautiful white peony Jade, I really like the small red edges.

  • For a white flower, it really does have lots of colors, shades and tones in it even besides that bit of red. Thanks for noticing! ♥☺.

    You know I love these flowers and have looked to growig them,but they say that they don’t do well in south florida, I am so sad as I just love these flowers…:)

  • Well, gardenias are soft, white and very fragrant too, but they don’t grow in New England. I did know someone who grew gardenias up north IN her bathroom! lol -Much like Florida weather if you have teens. ☺ Each part of the world has its own special plants and this one was in the North Carolina mountains. Thanks so much for commenting! ♥☺
