Paeonia lactiflora, an herbaceous perennial peony, also referred to as the Chinese peony. This one is falling apart a bit here, and I can’t recall the name of this particular variety at the moment. Sadly, the peonies came and went so fast this year, probably due to the wet, cool weather.
Spring River Flowers Moon Night
The river is smooth and calm this evening,
The peony flowers bloom.
The moon floats on the current.
The tide carries the stars.
– Qian Qi (710-782) -Chinese poet during the Tang Dynasty (618-907)
