|Several years ago I purchased a rather nice tree peony. The ID tag only listed it as No. 27. It would be nice to know what its real name is.|

There's a lot of tree peonies. It is rather nice!
I don't know where in the world you live, location can help to narrow down possibilities but some varieties will be popular anywhere.
I looked for one with bronze foliage as I can see it has some.
Paeonia 'Yachiyo Tsubaki' has bronze foliage.. read the description on the link..

The new attached image gives a better view of the leaves. I am not sure that they are the same as the ones in the references you supplied. What do you think?

|I don't know much about paeonia, but does petal count make a difference?|

|To be honest, I would think so. However, I really don't know. Maybe an expert will chime in.|

|Using the information supplied by JRsbugs, I looked at images of Paeonia 'Yachiyo Tsubaki' on dozens of websites and it seems that the mystery of No. 27's proper name is now solved.|

Bronze foliage isn't usual, with the flower colour, petals and wide availability (widely sold plants are usually good ones) seems to cinch it.

|Depending on where No. 27 came from, it could be a numbered seedling from a person's hybridizing program. I don't know that that tree peony 'Yachiyo Tsubaki' was ever called No. 27. But they are certainly similar indeed. |
