Peony ID Help??!!

lizbest1(5)April 21, 2013

I have been gardening in the same place for 5-6 years now and several varieties of peonies were the first things I planted. Unfortunately the first markers I used faded so that several aren't marked at all. I listed every single one I found documentation on and have them sorted by supposed bloom time, type and color. I think I should be okay on the singles, Japanese and semi-doubles but I have 6 double pinks that I'm not sure if I can reliably ID. If anyone has these varieties and can give me any tips on telling which is which please reply! Dr W Rumph, George W Peyton, Moonstone, Mrs. F D Roosevelt, Reine Hortense and Walter Faxon. Thanks!

It is really extensive.

Thanks! I looked online for a database with the varieties I misplaced, couldn't find one with all. This one does, I'm certainly adding it to my favorites!

And or you can just google the names of the peonies and you should get pictures with that.
