Tree Peony

Fussy to get started (plant only in the fall), but drop-dead gorgeous, the tree peony is an incredibly sweet-scented and beautiful plant in flower-a real stunner (I have heard gardeners who think it is an "over-the-top" bloom call it "the prostitute of the flower world" but I disagree). The bloom may not last long, but they are a seasonal treat every year. I recommend them! And a photo of the most beautiful lettuces I have ever grown, they rival most flowers in my eyes!
