White blooming peony  (Peony Festiva Maxima)

It is a special one for me. It's a gift from my mother's garden given to her 35 years ago from her mother.

Thanks for your thoughtful comments, I knew you all would understand that the sentimental value on this one is off the chart, too bad the blooms don't last very long, guess that's part of their charm. You tend to really appreciate them while they are in bloom ...:-)

Thanks GT, I also have lilac from my other Grandmother, dating back to 1994. It's been moved to several different locations in the yard over the years until I found a spot where it was happy.

Thanks Sue and Louise ! I look forward to seeing it bloom each year in Spring. Luckily for me, peonies have a very long life span.
