Ravishing peony

In our current rental garden, one of the few plants that was in it when we arrived, was this.

Huh? Yes, my thoughts exactly. Andrea, my gardener, helped me clear the grass and weeds and we realised it was probably a peony. We hoped by clearing it we were giving it a new lease on life.

The buds were amazing.

Then, voilĂ !

I've not always been a fan of peonies, as they can get so ruined by frost. But this one, oh yes, I see the attraction now.

What a beauty. If anyone knows the variety, do leave a comment below.

I'm considering digging it up in the autumn to split and take a section for me.
