Plant That Wouldn't Leave

I had a lovely tree peony for a couple of years, but it seemed much too big for my small garden.  I dug it up and gave it away to a friend. 

Most tree peonies are grafted onto herbaceous peony root stalk and when I dug the peony, I must have left some of the original root stalk in the ground.  Now, three years and one gift later, I have a really exquisite peony.  It is a single peony coming from a piece of the original root stock.   I think I like it better than the multi-petalled tree peony. Sometimes nature just makes good decisions for you!
