I love this tree peony.

That is really pretty. The last picture looks like a painting.

J'adore les pivoines, je les trouve tellement belles et gracieuses, quand j'étais enfant, je passais tous les matins devant une ferme qui en avait tout au long de son enclos, des rouges foncées, des roses, des pourpres, elles étaient magnifiques et gigantesques !
Bonne journée,
Bisous


nb : je t'ai envoyé un mail, mais tu ne l'as peut pas lu !

Who needs a name anyway? This peony by any other name would look as stunning. Gorgeous!!!

Lovely tree peony! ours are in stages of weather beaten, petals falling off to some still hanging on and buds yet to bloom.

Kim and Victoria,
Seems mislabeling is a common theme these days. I was just thinking about my Lady Clare camellia, hope it was not miss labeled. This peony is beautiful no question, enjoy!

Absolutely Lovely! I have some but they are not even close to opening... I'll enjoy yours until they do!

Amazing photos! I could just feel them bursting! I love peonies. They are such a delight in the spring. Very colorful. I don't have any in my garden. Maybe one day I will take the time to plant them because I enjoy them so much. Enjoy yours!
