American Peony is a garden plant. It has large, variously colored flowers. With numerous stamens and several pistils. The elements I mentioned of this flower above, make it very creative. Choose bright and interesting colors. Add lots of stamens to make the bud. This is my first ever stocking net nylon flower. And hence my practical reason for suggesting to try for beginners.
