I'm a newbie gardener. I got my landscaper to plant some peonies but did not get the name of the cultivators. Can anyone help me to ID these herbaceous peonies? Thank you in advance.

These light pink flowers turned white after a few days of sunlight. The centre has deep red streaks. These 6 photos are blooms from the same plant. I think they are doubles ... each centre bloom spans 7 to 8 inches in diameter. This was planted in 2008 (8th year). What cultivators are these?

Please help me ID the deep red flowers ... which cultivator are these from? The red flowers are from the same plant, also very large flowers when fully opened, they are about 5 to 6 inches wide. These were transplanted to their current location in 2010 (6th year).

... I know the cultivator of the pink flower ... it is a Sarah Bernhardt.

Thank you in advance for any help.

The first one could be Festiva Maxima. It has characteristic red streaks and rose scent.
