This is one of my biggest wrong buys. I had an old fashioned pink peony in mind and came home with this almost obscene monster. The flowers are plate sized and very intense in color (I havn't photoshopped these). No smell what so ever and a pretty short but very intense blooming. This year I counted 34 buds. Over the years my disappointment has turned into a mild form of loving for this sturdy and frisky plant and I am pretty sure that when we move I will take her with me. I am sure she will survive the change.


  1. This makes me smile ... I understand completely! We just have to love them no matter, right? It is a prolific one, and that is a gift for sure!

  2. I think it's a lovely flower! Can it be that peonies somewhat change their appearance and color depending on the type of soil?
