Design History:
This design is one of several in a small series of garden flowers which Hodo created for Takemura. Although this series was in direct imitation of Maria Gabo's Western Flowers Series, this particular design does not have a direct counterpart in that series.

Because there are almost certainly additional designs which remain to be documented, this series has not yet been assigned sequence numbers. For now the design is arbitrarily labeled with an alphabetic character since there is no publication date available.

Species Illustrated:
Herbaceous Peony (Chinese Peony), Paeonia lactiflora, 芍薬, しゃくやく , シャクヤク, shakuyaku.
