Buds of white tree peony
D133-2016 Unlabeled white woody peony, or tree peony.
This cultivar is planted at the western end of the long hillside bed that separates Laurel Ridge (rhododendrons and azaleas) from the traditional formal beds of herbaceous peonies. Though still in bud stage, it was further along than most of the other woody peonies. Closeups of some of the buds were taken during the same photo session.
