It's all about the journey--growing plants that speak to me. Traveling to find them is half the fun.
Unusual and Fragrant Peonies
'Al's Choice' intersectional
'Al's Choice', an intersectional, is not as floriferous as it was last year, possibly because it needs to be divided after six years. This is an issue that I've heard about these hybrid herbaceous-tree peony crosses.
'Pink Derby' took awhile to reach blooming size, but it's a winner--fragrant, too!
Although it has no fragrance, 'Rozella' is one of the more unusual peonies in my garden, its petal size huge and lightly edged in lighter pink.
Fragrance-free but extremely charming is 'The Fawn', a light pink spotted with darker pink.
'Pink Parasol Surprise' has both fragrance and unusual form. Its tuft of pale pink petals comes right out from the gold center.
