Can anyone confirm if the blooms of Peony Kirinmaru looks like the widely used photo on various nursery websites, i.e. light pink with numerous red streaks? (Just do a Google image search for Peony Kirinmaru.)
I am concerned about paying $50+ for this plant if the blooms are not as pictured online. Many years ago I had ordered Tree Peony Shima-Nishiki (red/pink two toned) and Tree Peony Kamata-Nishiki (supposedly wisteria blue). The first turned out solid pink, received a replacement that bloomed solid red. The latter was dark violet with no hint of blue at all, and yet the same picture with the blue flowers are still widely used today.
I am therefore a bit skeptical that the same picture is posted by all these vendors for Peony Kirinmaru and not many images from actual owners to be found.
