: any of a genus (Paeonia of the family Paeoniaceae) of chiefly Eurasian plants with large often double flowers
: the flower of a peony
The peony is my favorite early summer flower. The peony is a classic flower. Something you would have found in my Grandmother's garden. I got peony transplants from a friend in 2008. I waited patiently for 3 years for them to bloom. I was giddy in June of 2011 when they bloomed for the first time. They were everything I hoped for. They have gotten better each summer since. I am hopeful that once this winter is finally over.....I will be rewarded with these beautiful blooms.
