peonies - these grew in our yard growing up, white, pink and dark pink. they were always in bloom for my birthday and my birthday dinner always included a bouquet of them. that smell is among my favorite things on earth!
Peony petals are edible! Garnish punches & lemonades, use in summer salads. In China, the petals are parboiled and sweetened for use as a tea-time delicacy - They were used China & Europe to treat headache, asthma, & childbirth pain.
