You are right, Alex! Thumbs up It is Coral Sunset! Must be the heat or something because I have never seen it this cream. My Coral peonies are all turning cream on the third day.

It is quite beautiful - do petals stay long afterwards?

You should add that one to the database for Coral Sunset to show the amount of fading it can do. Doesn't matter when in the life of the bloom you look that peony is amazing!

Thanks Liz. That is an excellent idea! I have gotten peachy color but never this cream.

Color stages of Coral Charm this year. The corals perform wonderfully this year.

I think you should save them all to the data base with those labels. If your pics aren't enough to make everyone who sees them covet that plant nothing will!

I really love the fading habit of the corals. Wouldn't it be great if someone captured the fading process with time lapse photography? I don't think I could ever get sick of watching that.

Karen, the petal form of your Coral Sunset is so pleasing. I hope the flower holds for you in the heat!
