Artist's Description

The peony is a flowering plant in the genus Paeonia, the only genus in the family Paeoniaceae. They are native to Asia, Europe and Western North America. Scientists differ on the number of species that can be distinguished ranging from 25 to 40, although the current consensus is 33 known species.

Most are herbaceous perennial plants 0.25–1 metre (0.82–3.28 ft) tall, but some are woody shrubs 0.25–3.5 metres (0.82–11.48 ft) tall. They have compound, deeply lobed leaves and large, often fragrant flowers, in colors ranging from purple red to white or yellow, in late spring and early summer.

Peonies are among the most popular garden plants in temperate regions. Herbaceous peonies are also sold as cut flower on a large scale, although generally only available in late spring and early summer.

I took this photo on 27-May-2017 at the Presby Memorial Iris Gardens. The main house which is the gardens office has a lovely garden area in the front that contain other flowers besides iris, which is where there were at least 4 different kinds of peony shrubs. I LOVE PEONY! This particular one was huge – much larger than my hand, and had buds along side it.
