This Tree Peony (variety unknown) usually has a large number of these blousy flowers.
Sadly, it was hit by a late frost, & there are only two this year. But those two are quite a sight this week!
Sometimes the flowers suggested to make a garden 'wildlife friendly' reads like a list of shortlived thugs many may not want in the garden. Yet the bees adore these Peonies - big open centres that can easily be accessed. I've been watching them this afternoon.
Planting beautiful cottage garden flowers creates a beautiful space both pollinators & people can enjoy & benefit from.
So perhaps I could convince you to plant more Peonies?
