A peony from the yard of a WWII veteran that my parents purchased 2 years ago. Light pink guard petals, white to cream center (bomb type) with a hint of red. Thanks.

None of mine of that shape have any red in the center so I have no guesses for this one, sorry!

No name. Lovely fragrance.

Check out Peony Philomele. Not positive it's that, but does resemble it.
