The Rockii Peony.

I know I already posted Blue Butterfly! I think this picture better shows off the lovely dark center markings you find in rockii peonies. It reminds me of a poppy.

I love rockii peonies best of all. They're hardier than the other tree peonies, and have especially huge flowers.

That peony is so friggin' awesome. And $75 for a rockii peony is a steal!

A ha ha ha ha...

It's too bad that they are so costly. I remember we got that one for some kind of special occasion, but I don't remember what!

It's oddly comforting to think that that peony will be around longer than we will. Peonies really are the king of flowers!

You should get one some time! They're an investment but they're virtually pest-free and can last for hundreds of years. Compared to the herbaceous variety they like some shade, though.

I plan to at some point! They're so $$ that I'm thinking that in a few years when everything else is "done" (ha, right??) I'll be ready to splurge.

I really recommend them! I know that they're very pricey, but I love the fact that neither bug nor beast will touch them.
