    Looks a lot like the old-fashioned P. officinalis.

    Thanks jenny, it's probaly a very old plant. It was given to me from a very old neighbour who's sadly passed away now.

    Those ones are very long-lasting. I've one that was here when we moved in, in 1988, and the previous owner wasn't a gardener so it would have survived years of neglect.

    I agree - those are much tougher and able to withstand rougher conditions than the more fussy, cultivated varieties. They also flower a bit earlier, although they still aren't appearing yet here. 
    Most peonies won't be in flower for a while, except perhaps in very mild areas in the south. Mid to late May here for flowering.  :)
    It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....

    I have a white peony. I think it's Jan van Leeuwen because I saw one of that name at Hyde Hall gardens which looked exactly the same. It flowers towards the end of May.

    Does anyone want to suggest an ID for this because I can't remember. It is a species not a named cultivar

    Life's tragedy is that we get old too soon and wise too late.
