|This little cutie is called 'Clown'|
|'Al's Choice' is an intersectional peony named by Allan Rogers.|
|A close-up of 'Dayton' just before it opens shows the gorgeous petal edges.|
Coming in at a close second for sheer color magnitude is 'Ursa Major'. If all of the peonies in the garden were such a deep and lustrous raspberry shade, my eyes wouldn't know where to light. As luck would have it (I certainly can't claim I planned it.), they are spaced far enough apart so as not to each lose their impact.
|'Ursa Major' is a Japanese form peony.|
