|I got this old peony rhizome from my elderly neighbor. I traded some of my lilies and perennials for it. This was in November of 2012 (I checked my online journals .). I am leaning towards Edulis Superba but I could be wrong. What do you guys think?|

|I think you are right Alex. Some of the blooms on google search are fuller. But mine are kind of young. Wishing they will bloom like the one in Adelman's catalog.|

|My first thought was, yes - Edulis Superba. Then when Alex suggested Mons. Jules, I pulled up my own photos of the two. I had never realized before how similar they are!|
Mons. Jules Elie
Is your peony fragrant? Mons. Jules is VERY fragrant; I have not checked E.S. for fragrance.
The difference in color of my two photos could be a difference in light or Mons. J. could have faded a little.

| Hi Linda, |
I don't remember about the smell. Come springtime, I will definitely take a sniff and see if it is fragrant. I just checked my garden photos this year and it bloomed about the same time as Karl Rosenfield. Your MJE looks similar to mine.
I read that ES is very fragrant.
Thank you for the ID.
