A Star is Born

At home. I will recall its history: January 4th 2007 peony seeds placed in the frozen earth under snow; May 2008 first growth rises through the earth; 2009, 2010, 2011 increased growth of young seedlings; 2012, the first white flower, a fragrant bomb, graces a slender stem; I move the plant close to the entry of the house to bask in its scent; Summer 2013 a dozen winter-white flowers reveal its true beauty.
Although not yet registered with the American Peony Society, its name is easy -Snow-White!

Michel St-Pierre is an enthusiastic seedling 
grower in La Malbaie, Québec. He recently wrote
about his passion for peonies in the February
2013 (vol. 16/number 1) newsletter.
