Flower - The Peony

 
Peony  
 
The peony is a cream color flower. The flower has a fragrance. It can live up 100 years or more with the right amount of nutrients. The Peony is a layered flower; compared to other flowers it has a lot of pedals. The texture is very smooth like silk.

The peony has a large circumference approximately thirty centimeters wide. It also has an extensive, droopy stem. Its droopy stem is because the flower is reaching for sun. The leaves on the Peony come in groups of threes. The peony is located in the back of the Nottingham Courtyard.
