Garden Treasure

Meet Paeonia ‘Garden Treasure’ – I needed to use the flash to give you a true idea of the colour of this glorious hybrid peony.  Known as an ‘intersectional’ peony, it is a cross between a herbaceous and tree peony (P. lactiflora x P. lutea).  So, it has the size and spectacular face of a tree peony but the more compact plant size and herbaceous stems of the traditional garden peony. 

This beauty just glows in the late day light.  And there’s a bonus:  no ants!
