I love all peonies and wish I had more, but these three could almost be my favorites…....

Iris, your Peonies are so beautiful. I like the shape and colors. I don’t think they can grow in my zone(11) and feel sorry for that. Thanks for sharing.

Sharad, I don’t think peonies will grow in tropical counties….I think they need the cold winter. I’m glad you enjoyed seeing these blooms.

Jroot, I’m sorry I don’t know the name of any of these particular peonies. The plants were given to me at different time by diffferent people. The one you mention was started by my DD, Wyndyacre, and given to me as a Mother’s Day gift several years ago. She had bought the bare root and got it started bf she gave it to me.

MsDeb, I wished you were here with your camera. These blooms were huge and lusious. I’m sure you would have seen them a totally different light than my pics.
