We went this year as we’ve done every year for a while now, out to Delano to Countryside Gardens to see their peony show. It was the perfect day for a long drive into the country, and the flowers were worth the effort to get there. In the end, we brough two new ones home. Red Grace, a stunning deep red peony with a bloom nearly a perfect globe shape. We’ve been waiting three years for this grower to have enough of these to start selling them, and this year was our year. The other was Laura Dessert, a Japanese form with white outer petals and a yellow center that is supposed to be very fragrant.
