Peony ID Help??!!

Posted by LizinElizabeth 5 ( on

I have been gardening in the same place for 5-6 years now and several varieties of peonies were the first things I planted. Unfortunately the first markers I used faded so that several aren't marked at all. I listed every single one I found documentation on and have them sorted by supposed bloom time, type and color. I think I should be okay on the singles, Japanese and semi-doubles but I have 6 double pinks that I'm not sure if I can reliably ID. If anyone has these varieties and can give me any tips on telling which is which please reply! Dr W Rumph, George W Peyton, Moonstone, Mrs. F D Roosevelt, Reine Hortense and Walter Faxon. Thanks!

Please check out this peony database to see pictures and descriptions of your peonies:

It is really extensive.

Thanks! I looked online for a database with the varieties I misplaced, couldn't find one with all. This one does, I'm certainly adding it to my favorites!

Check out the Heartland Peony Society. They have a great database with pictures. :)

And or you can just google the names of the peonies and you should get pictures with that.
