Miss Mary Garden Peony
Paeonia lactiflora ‘Miss Mary’
This peony was introduced by William H. Krekler in 1967. It is a really nice red single flowered type. These pictures were taken in my friend’s garden and I guess I had never visited when this peony was blooming. He has been dividing it and keeps planting the divisions down the side of a long stonewall. There were a lot of flowers in the patch last week and it gave an overall very nice effect.
If you like Daffodils this site may be of interest:
There is a lot of beautiful photography over there. The landscapes that the Daffs are growing in are better than the flowers in some instances.
