Peonies - A Very Regal Flower

When I look at peonies the first thing I see is how beautiful they are.  To me Peonies are such a royal flower.  But they do tend to be top heavy.

After a rain you may see your once gracious flower dipping it's head into a mud puddle. I've seen lot's of these flowers lying spread out in many a yard.

Some people tie their stems to prevent this. Others just let them fall. Either way, after the sun comes out and the plants get a chance to dry, they stand tall again.

However you decide to retain your  flower bushes, they really are a beautifully royal looking flower. I have seen quite a few creative ways of keeping these flowers in an upright position.

You might consider using a small fence or trellis to do the job. Do you have any ideas for caring for your own droopy garden flowers? Please drop us a line at the bottom of this page, if you do.

According to Wikkipedia, the peony is the only member of the Paeoniaceae. They are native to Asia, Southern Europe and Western North America.

Did you notice how these flowers seem to attract ants?  In bud form they are protected by a thick film.

It is the ants that remove this covering allowing the flowers to bloom.
