Make your garden even more captivating by pairing peonies with the contrasting flower shape and foliage of graceful irises. Try blending romantic roses with the lush leaves of peony plants, or the cheerful look of daisies peeking out from below. For a combination of sweet scents add lavender, or ornamental grasses with your peonies for a mix of textures and colors.
