    My peonies bloomed so pretty this year but we have been having a heat spell here so they didn't last very long. :(

    Beautiful nonetheless 2!

    Ours have long since stopped blooming. We are in zone 6a. What zone are you?

    Beautiful blooms. I especially like your white peony.

    Do you know the name of your white peony by any chance? Having a scent makes it all the more attractive to me and I'd love to get one for myself.

    It is a Festiva Maxima Peony, an old one but a good one. The pink and white one is a Sorbet and it also smells good.

    I have Festiva Maxima too. It is as reliable as they come and also nicely scented.

    My beloved Peonies are long gone here too, due to the freakishly hot weather we are having.
    I've got Festiva Maxima too, one of my favorites.

    I like the combination of the colors of the Sorbet Peony.
