Each summer, this peony produces one beautiful blossom! This flower probably looked exactly the same as the photo, last year. Yet, I am blessed to see this natural wonder of God, each time it's in full bloom It looked a little ragged during the afternoon, so I sprayed it with water. An hour later, the flower had revived and it was very pretty! Photo: Mine

Peony is an important flower in my country. Probably it is not an official National Flower but it is close.

It's a beautiful flower, but mine never stay beautiful very long. Maybe two days, at the most!

@kobesbuddy Perhaps this is the feature of peony. Some flowers just can't last for a long time.

@kobesbuddy mine started longer this year with the lack of rain we had. Now that it's been raining almost every day it I'm sure my peonies are laying on the ground. I will have to look later.

Are you saying your plant only had one flower that blooms every year and never more than the one flower? I have several that bloom but with all the rain were getting it'll probably look soggy soon.

A single peony only produces one or two blossoms.

That's why I always take a photo when it's at the peak of beauty.

It is a pretty flower but I wonder why not more of them?

Every spring we end up with only two buds. One matures into a large blossom, the other one produces a very small flower. I'm not sure why this happens:)

There are always two blossoms each year, the one comes later with a smaller flower.
