Peony ID - Shirley Temple?

gfult(6)June 10, 2008

Hi, from one of the other posts I think this is also Shirley Temple.

Do you agree?

-It is about 2.5 feet tall

-The blooms are about 5 inches across

-The blooms are white to very pale pink with occasional streaks of darker pink

-The blooms are fragrant

As I do more searching it could be Festiva Maxima or Candy Heart too. How do I know the difference? I don't have other Peonies to compare it to for sturdiness. It is blooming now but we are having a heat wave so it may be a little earlier than usual.

Not sure which post you are referencing. Here's a photo of Shirley Temple as it grows in my garden...
