Roses! I garden a lot and hate peonies! I'm not a fan of the smell, the droopy buds, or the fact peonies attract bugs, especially ants. I'd never be caught dead with them for decor. At least not alive peonies.
I like the look of peonies for short amount of time that they actually look good but the smell is too much. Also..i garden and my peonies drive me nuts. They bloom for such a short amount of time. Mine always seem to bloom right before a nice big rain so they're tattered immediately. I guess taking care of the actual plant has ruined them for me.
