I don't grow peonies, but I grow peony poppies and that was my criteria when selecting this poppy. The full flowers fit the frilly flower formula. Peony poppies self-sow if you allow the seeds to ripen. Just shake the pods around and wait until next year. I'm still hoping my pale pink and nearly black (purple) ones will bloom. We had an incredibly warm winter and the poppy germination rate has (so far) been disappointing. Unlike me, poppies like a bit of a cold winter.

|Spirea, stipa, spirea—with a dash of blue nigella.|
|Verbascum 'Southern Charm'|
|Amsonia hubrichtii frilly foliage and flowers.|
|Itea 'Little Henry'|
While I never intentionally purchased frilly bloomers per se, each delivers a dose of delight in my garden.
