Sunday Flowers: Peonies

Sunday, June 27, 2010

Peonies can be found in Asia, southern Europe, and North America. They range from white to red to yellow and usually bloom in late spring to summer. They have large flower petals, usually very fragrant, and deeply lobed leaves.

These are one of my favourite flowers. The house I grew up in as a child had a massive peonie bush. The flowers were of the darkest pink bordering on purple, I fell in love then, although I prefer paler coloured flowers.

These remind me of home! My mom has tons of these in her front yard. As a kid they freaked me out because they always had so many ants on them but I believe that's how they pollinate...or something...

Peonies are beautiful; my mom always puts one in a clear bowl so we can watch it bloom. One of my favorite fragrances has notes of peony, too!
