Lots of interesting blooms! The colors in the picture are somewhat not as good as the real thing. It could be caused by the overcast day, or an incorrect setup of the camera.

This lovely TP is very close to the normal red color.

People are holding some products they purchased.

The original pictures are really large. I am not sure how you can get them from pb website. Probably click and choose some options. The original-sized pictures are more conveying.

Ok, I figured out. Click on the image. Then double click the image in pb. Then click the plus sign on the bottom right corner. The original images are huge.

Notice that tree peony shima nishiki which has most vigorous growths yielding totally red flowers.

I just checked. The two-tuned TP has cultivar name "Hua er'qiao" or "Er'qiao" meaning "two-sisters". Some also interpret the name as "clown".

They are exceptional! Thank you for posting. I loved them all. What a show! Do you happen to know what is the white/green one? I'm just curious.

Yes, thank you for sharing these beautiful photos of peonies from your trip. I really enjoy looking at them. It must be very nice to see them in person. I am sure I will be overwhelmed.
