Peony taken in May at Lakewold Gardens in Tacoma, Washington (USA)
Some more of the splendor that is Lakewold. Peonies abound in the garden, both the old standards I grew up with, and the more exotic and huge varieties. This particular one really caught my eye. The shading from deep rosy pink to nearly white at the outer edges of the petal was quite exquisite and extremely appealing to me…..and in fact, to the bees as well. I actually had trouble getting a shot without a bee flying through it!!
Per Wikipekia
Peony or paeony is a name for plants in the genus Paeonia, the only genus in the flowering plant family Paeoniaceae. They are native to Asia, southern Europe and western North America. Boundaries between species are not clear and estimates of the number of species range from 25 to 40.
Most are herbaceous perennial plants 1.5 – 5 feet (0.5 – 1.5 metres) tall, but some resemble trees up to 5 – 10 feet (1.5 – 3 metres) tall. They have compound, deeply lobed leaves, and large, often fragrant flowers, ranging from red to white or yellow, in late spring and early summer.
