Peony: One of my father's favourite plants and not hard to see why. Growing up planting them, caring for them and making simple flora arrangements was my job as a child - I loved it!
They are so elegant and the clustered, profusion of leaves in the majority of the varieties just adds elegance to any decor or garden. If showcasing them in a vase ensure the actual vessel compliments and does not overshadow the beauty of these flowers. Plain and simple are the order of the day here.
