Bed view, Asian tree peonies, seen from the Laurel Ridge Trail
Foreground, pink, Plant Bl.
Downhill is a plant which I believe to be Bi (pale pink). The Red bloom at its base is an intruder. It belongs to Be, and is on a tall stem that has bent nearly horizontal (seen better in a different shot, from below).
Look closely at the foliage on plant Bi, and you'll see the leaves are very different from those of most peonies. They are smooth, unserrated, and undivided. They resemble lilac leaves more than peony leaves.
