DAYLILY & PEONIES



 Bright, sunny daylily.

I believe this may be a Peony but I cannot recall for certain. This image is so soft and gentle I can picture it being used in a shampoo ad - wouldn't you want your hair to smell like this?

Rare colour for a Peony.

  1. Is it an intersectional peony (the yellow one?) Patrick, (Patrick's Garden) wrote a post about different peony varieties a while back: http://patricksgarden.com/garden-treasure-kopper-kettle-itoh-peonies/

    Hope the link works for you.
