This tree peony is the star of my May garden.
I like the simple elegance of the flowers.
It's a pity that flowers don't last longer. But, even an expectation of a tree peony blooming is a thrill!
Last spring's late frost killed the peony buds. Maybe, because of that, it is doing its best this year.
The white splashes on the flowers' trim are pretty:
Well, this is the end of a wonderful display. I need to fertilize it soon after the blooming ends and then just wait for next year!
If you need general information about tree peony classification, planting and care, I'd recommend this site:
