"Paeonia 'Joker', (2-DB-PK) lactiflora cultivar Peony, (Landis /Rogers, 2004), USDA Hardiness Zone 2, Medium height, full double, dark pink petals, fades to picotee edgings, midseason bloomer, Michigan Bloom Month 5.

Apparently, this cultivar comes from a Bockstoce (Pittsburg, PA) seedling that Henry Landis (Ontario, CN) acquired in 1963. Sometime latter, Landis sent the plant to Rogers (Wilsonville, OR) who registered it in 2004. Or so the story goes."
