Red Flower With Yellow Center, May 2013

Red Flower In May

[Taken 9 May 2013]

This currently unidentified red flower peony Alexander Woolcott bloomed before I could get my landscaper in to help identify all the plants and flowers on my property. The long leaves in the foreground belong to this plant; the wider ones in the back are the hollyhocks’ leaves (long before they bloomed).

It got cut to the ground with the rest of the perennials during the fall cleanup, so hopefully it comes back next Spring so I can try to figure out what it is. I really liked it.

Update, 12/30: I Googled double red flower yellow center to find images that looked like the above, and I’m 95% sure this is peony Alexander Woolcott. Given the number of other peonies on the property, I’m not surprised.
