Paeonia lactiflora - Chinese Peony

Family: Paeoniaceae
Common Name: Chinese Peony, Garden Peony 'Sarah Bernhardt'
These flowers were, for a brief period of their lives, in Singapore serving as the lovely bouquet of a bride who came from China. I have never seen real peonies before attending her wedding and thank goodness for photos, the beauty of these flowers can be admired beyond their physical existence.
