One in Adelphi, Maryland, one in Wildwood, Florida, one at the US National Arboretum with a grandfatherly interest in many more around the DC area (unless noted, pictures are taken the day of post)

Paeonia obovata with a lovely Easter egg bud
I like this peony primarily for its fruit, but the flowers are nice and when they are white, as this one is, they nicely set off the interesting matte foliage that has reddish tints in spring. We have this growing nicely in various locations in quite deep deciduous shade.
