Another tree peony, Paeonia suffruticosa, Light pink, with purple-pink boss
As I was wandering around the yard I came upon another tree peony hidden amongst some tall shrubs and small serviceberry trees. At first I thought it was the same color as the other tree peonies but I noticed that the petals were faintly pink. Upon closer inspection they are actually a very, very light purply-pink with a darker blush close to the center boss of the flower. So, I was mistaken when I thought I only bought the white variety. This peony also bloomed a bit later than the white ones. Again I don't know the name of the variety but a rather attractive one with the purple complementing the deep gold of the stamens.
The honeybee was...well busy as a bee and moving too fast to get it in focus but it had huge packets of pollen on its legs and the photo shows the spent stamens on an older flower.
