I just had to post this. Because they are beautiful, elegant, subtle, and my favorite.
Peonies are often scented and are of various colors ranging from red to white or yellow. They are usually seen in late spring and early summer.
Peonies tend to attract ants to the flower buds. This is due to the nectar that forms on the outside of the flower buds, and is not required for the plants' own pollination or other growth. They help in opening the dense double flower buds.
