Just gorgeous!! I have 10 different kinds of peonies (including Bowl of Beauty) and adore each one. I can't wait to see mine (still buds).

Peonies are my fav flower. My grandmother's house front was all peony bushes and I recall tending to them with her and always loving them. Ver special!

Have a wonderful week full of blooms. :)

Isn't it satisfying when perennials finally settle in and start to put on a good show? The flowers have such a pretty combination of fluffy centre and large petalled exterior. Plus the colour pairing of yellow nestled inside the pink. Is the scent as strong as other peonies?


Beautiful images of these peony blossoms. I want to touch the cool petals - they always feel so lovely.

I love peonies, your Bowl of Beauty is just that!


This might be my favorite Peony. It definitely deserves its own post and you graciously did it justice.


It is wonderful. One of my favorites.

Thanks for your kind words this morning Kathleen. Much appreciated.


Amazing! Peonies are great cut flowers, too. I wrote one of my first posts about Peonies. Your Bowl of Beauty is incredible!


She's a gorgeous specimen! I love Peonies and this one is outstanding. :)


Kathleen, It's a beauty...The color and form are stellar. Must add to list. gail


Bowl of Beauty... that one has been on my list forever. I need to order it already. lol It's gorgeous. I especially like your second picture ~ it's divine!


Your pictures are so beautiful that I had to leave a comment here too. The astrantia in the previous post is stunning too. I think this is the same variety I just planted (hope so anyway!).
P.S. I am glad that you were able to find a double flowering almond. The blooms are not long lived, but are every bit as lovely as roses.


What a great peony. I would plant them all if I could.
