Thumb of 2015-05-24/Frillylily/6d215a

I seen this at a local park and it was not labeled. The blooms were streaked and some of them had quite a bit of color, and others not nearly as much. Each bloom looked really different. Any idea what it is? TIA

Is the base as pink as it looks in your picture or is it a white peony with pink streaks, Frillylily?

Check out Candy Stripe. Could that be it?

Hot Dog! I believe you are right! Well it is going on my want list of course. I was thinking, maybe we should have 'anything I don't want' list lol would save us so much time since we all want one of everything right!?

Thank You!

I agree, Frillylily! With all of the peonies I have my want list still isn't getting any shorter! The pictures of blooms on this forum is one of the main reasons why! Feeling a bit guilty--the crappy weather is getting me down--just put in an order at La Pivoinerie D'Aoust for Schafe, Grace Root, Josette, Lillian Gumm, Le Printemps, Superior, Madame Émile Gallé, and Attar of Roses. Only 2 of those were on my want list (but the others would've been if I'd ever seen them before!)
I have Candy Stripe, got it fall 2013. It was a late starter and I haven't paid much attention to the plant since we've had so much rain and I haven't been outside much. I'll post a pic if it does bloom this spring.
