Today’s photos are from Priti Pant, who is sharing some beautiful images from her Michigan garden.

light pink peony flowers with clusters of smaller petals insideThis beautiful pink peony (Paeonia hybrid, Zones 3–8) is of a type called “anemone form.” These peonies have a ring of large petals with a cluster of smaller petals (petaloids) in the center.

pink single petal peonies with a metal dragonfly garden art aboveThis single peony with just a simple ring of petals is delicate. Single forms generally stand up better without staking, as the flowers aren’t as heavy.

dark purple-red clematis flowersClematis are flowering vines. Many of them bloom most heavily in the spring, but some will repeat bloom through the summer with others blooming mostly in the fall. Full sun and rich soil will yield the most blooms.

    Oh I love seeing real people's gardens shared here.
    I love Floating flowers in a bowl of water, always so peaceful and different than long stems in a vase.
    You have such an amazing rose bush, wish I new the name of that one!
    It is nice the way the single petal peonies can old the blossoms up on the stems, unlike the heavy multi petals.
    You have a pretty garden and nice plants.
    FINE GARDENING- I never get email reminders anymore for the GPOD is it just me or others too?

      We are working on the issues with GPOD! We are in the middle of transitioning our software and it appears there are some bugs, but we have our best people on it. So sorry for any inconvenience!
