This flower for mom called Paeonia officinalis ‘Rubra Plena’ , a Peony in the genus Paeonia. My late mother favored this variety and had them in her garden.
According to Wikipedia, it is a perennial native to Asia, Southern Europe, and Western North America. Research has shown that these plants besides being very attractive are also beneficial to humans because of their genetic makeup. They contain flavonoids, tannins, stilbenoids, triterpenoids, steroids, paeonols, and phenols. Combined these compounds give antioxidant, anti-tumor, anti-pathogenic, immune system, cardiovascular system, and central nervous system protection.
It’s amazing what we can find about plants and flowers that we share our world with yet don’t have a clue about them other than that we find them attractive to look at and that they may give off a wonderful aroma.
