I’m not very good at gardening so I am naturally drawn to plants that thrive on benign neglect. I discovered this peony struggling underneath a rampant rosemary bush last year and thought it had died. Its stems were snapped and broken and it was getting no light at all. This year, the rosemary bush was severely pruned back (after all, how much rosemary can a body eat?) and the peony has recovered spectacularly, throwing out dozens of gorgeous blowsy blossoms. My kind of plant. Click to enlarge.
