HI All--I've been shopping for some new peonies recently. Since most of the nurseries show only the flower, I've been searching the web for additional photos of the cultivars I'd like.
What I've noticed is that these pictures vary A LOT from each other from site to site--not only in color but the form of the flower. Even common cultivars like edulis superba look really different from site to site.
Here it is at A&D nursery:
And here it is at Van Bourgondien
I was wondering if anyone knows why this is---is it mislabeling? Do the blooms shape and color vary that much as they age? Do they vary alot in form on a single plant? Are there strains--so that the flower form from one vendor would look different from one purchased from another?
