There's no contest. My all-time, hands-down absolute favourite is, and always will be, the peony. No other flower bursts open with such exuberance, and none could possibly smell as sweet. While there are many varieties, you'd be hard-pressed to find a more fulsome and fabulous blossom than the white peony. The fact that they bloom for a few short weeks every June only adds to the allure for me. Oh to be a June bride with a bouquet full of peonies…heaven!
