A Bouquet of Beautiful Blooms

Like most girls, I really love flowers. I’m picky, though. Not only do I want my flowers to look beautiful, I also want them to have a beautiful fragrance. This is why I think peonies are the perfect spring flowers. They produce big, extravagant blooms with a gorgeous fragrance that washes over you whenever you come near them.

These particular blooms grow on plants given to us by my great-aunt. That’s one of the reasons that these plants have so many blooms: they’re old. The older the peony, the better they do! One of the best things about them is that they can be split as they grow to make more and more peonies! That way you can expand your beds or give them as gifts. And really, what could be a better gift that a peony root?
