Archduke Charles, true chameleon. By the time it's done the entire flower will be the raspberry red of the outer petals.
I got these pansies from Lowe's last fall. I don't get many plants from big box stores, but sometimes I'll get pansies. These are in a small bed with the above Archduke Charles. They don't really go with Archduke Charles, they're not my favorite color, yet they look beautiful. Maybe it's the late afternoon light that dresses up everything.
My one and only peony so far, 'Festiva Maxima'. It's beautiful in every stage, from bud to fully open.
Madame Isaac Pereire, maybe?
