I am not sure what its name is but it closely matches White Cap. It is a Japanese with dark pink guards and pink/white center. It has a scent similar to rose and very strong stems. It is how it looks without support. I would really like to trade it for about 24 blooming size yellow crocosmias or mixed is ok too.

Could be Gay Paree?

I am sorry but it is definitely not Gay Paree because I have that too and the above peony flowers do not match those of Gay Paree. Gay Paree has lighter pink petals.

THanks, Frillylily. I like it very much too. It smells awesome, even better than Gay Paree. Here is a pic of Gay Paree for comparison.

Shirley, I am sorry but I traded all of the peony roots away. If you are interested in this peony, I may have some next year for trade. I would love to trade them for the George Davidson, but I already have the Emily McKenzie. Thanks.

Karen-That will be fine. I have 4-5 new crocosmias so they may be tradeable by next year.
