tree peony ID

Can anyone identify these tree peonies?

All came from items sold as generic colors.

The color of this one is a deep bluish purple; camera can not capture true color.

Medium height bush

This one is very light pink (a bit lighter than pic):

Great pics...
Wish I could do this...
How about a leaf close up, I may have one and not know it.

This is the most close-up picture I have of the bluish-purple one. Again, the color is way off; it is a deep bluish-purple, unlike so many reddish purple named cultivars.

Could it be Gunpoden?

Gunpoden is described as a deep purple/pink. I would describe this as a deep blue purple that ages with more reddish tones. Wish there were better pictures of Gunpoden on the web. Thanks for your response. It's possible that that is what it is. I find it hard to believe that this is just some seedling that was never widely propagated.
