Hi there,

I inherited the peony below from my late Mother-in-law, of whom I was very fond, and miss her dearly. I wasn't sure which one it was, and in true peony form, took 3 years from transplant to flower.
She's about 24" tall with the flowers only 4-5" additional above the foliage. I assume she's full grown as each year she's been about this size.
Does anyone recognize her?
Thanks so much for your help!
Jen

I have one similar to that. I think its called Sorbet.

I'm glad I could help. I got mine from Costco a few years ago.
