Yes, she has a name “Precious”. This is sheer garden extravagance, on my part, but I look forward to that first bloom she produces every year. It stops the passers by, so definitely worth every penny!! She’s been here 7 years and if I had been charging admission to see her, hey… I would have paid for her by now… haha!! Garden Treasure is her real peony name, but I prefer Precious! I’m really not a nut job… just nuttieeee!!
