Intersectional Peony

Posted by
Steven (Chicagoland, United States) on 29 May 2013 in Plant & Nature and Portfolio.

This intersectional peony is a hybrid of the herbaceous peony and tree peony. The tree peony has woody above ground stems that remain throughout the year, much like a small shrub. The leaves, however, are deciduous and fall each autumn. Herbaceous peonies die back to the ground each autumn.

what a fascinating flower, and what a perfect image of it!
i've got a peony bush with very similar blooms, but they are long gone ...

@franz: These were long gone after they bloomed, too! They seem to last no more than two days before they start drooping and petals then fall off.
