Each Monday Cathy from Rambling In The Garden invites us to share a vase assembled from materials collected in our gardens.
The garden reached its springtime peak this week as irises, roses and peonies shared the spotlight in the borders. Today’s vase focuses on 3 varieties of frilly pink peonies with a couple stems of phlox and roses as companions.
Paeonia ‘Pink Parfait’ was the first peony I bought for my garden—fully double, vibrant pink, lightly fragrant.
Paeonia ‘Madame Emile Debatene’ has salmon-pink and rose flowers with a double center and is highly fragrant.
I think this light pastel pink is Paeonia lactiflora ‘Sarah Bernhardt,’ a passalong from my garden club friend Jane. This is its second year in my garden but its first year blooming. Flowers are large and very fragrant.
