Flora Focus || Peony

Time to learn about my favorite flowers, Peonies!!! I just think they have the most gorgeous blooms, they are huge! I have 2 of these bushes in my yard and neither of them bloomed, so I just had to go out and buy myself some. I love that they bud out as almost perfect balls and open up to reveal a huge flower. Flowers are amazing. Is this bloom anyone else's favorite?

Peony
Botanical Name: Paeonia spp.
Flower: Blooms late spring to early summer in many colors, including pink, white and red. Large, round blooms with round petals.
Leaf: Compound leaves with smooth margins.
