Unknown Plant

killgriff07(zone 9b So-Cal)June 17, 2009

I ran into this beautiful flower and don't know what it is, could anyone help to identify it? It resembles a rose from a distance and has an incredible odor, but the leaves look nothing like a rose. The seeds develop several bunched together in the middle of the flower. I would really appreciate any information as to what this beautiful flower is.

If you want a real treat, try growing some tree peonies. They are a little pricey, but well worth the beautiful colors that you can't get from regular peonies, like yellow, candystripe (red and white), purple, lilac, and other pastel colors that don't exist with deciduous peonies.
