Peony Tree ID
Hi, remember me? I was wondering a while ago how to propagate from my mother's peony tree. I found a small branch that had its own roots growing and dug it up. Well that seems to be still alive, wilted over, but yet alive. Anyways, someone was curious as to what kind it was, we have no idea, but it's in bloom now so here a some pics. This tree is about 25 yrs old, and my father is one of those guys that gets over zealous w/ cutting things down, so this tree had been cut down to nothing almost every year, but it survives on. It's hard to tell the size by the pic, it stands past my chest, so 4.5'-5' high. The color w/ my dig cam, is slightly off too. Its a true magenta color. (I think this cam gives it an untrue purple hue) Being as old as it is, it's probally a very common peony tree. So ID should hopefully be easy.
Here's a close up of a blossum, the center is yellowish orange.
Just for fun, here's a bud just blossoming
