Peony with Hairy Seedpod: Please ID

Posted by plantomaniac08 7b (My Page) on

I purchased a peony earlier this year from a local Lowes and I am in need of an ID (When I purchased it, the "information tag" was missing). The underside of the leaves are "hairy" along with the main stems and the leaf stems. The seed pod present when I purchased this plant is also hairy. I unfortunately do not know what color flowers it has (I purchased it after it was done blooming), but if anyone could narrow it down for me it would be much appreciated! Here's a photo from earlier this year, sorry it's not very up close:

Looks pretty much like every other P. lactiflora hybrid does when not flowering. Strong stem suggests it's one of the newer hybrids that isn't as prone to flopping over when flowering.

@smivies, thank you kindly!

With Herbeceous peonies I have found that you can get more plants sometimes by cutting off the stem, sticking them in rooting hormone, and getting that section to root so that you end up having 2 plants. It works pretty well at least with mine.

If it blooms again perhaps it will be possible to narrow the list to an exact species (or to a few, seems like some peony flowers look similar).

I think you meant to say hybrid, not species?

@smivies,
Yes, I did mean hybrid. >.< I'm not sure why I didn't catch that when I re-read my post, you already provided the species for me. :)
