This was growing at Edinburgh Zoo but the staff didn't know what it is, apart from it's probably oriental as it was near the Panda house.

    Could it be a type of anemone?

    The leaves look sort of chrysanthemummy

    I thought the flowers looked a bit dog rosey, but the leaves don't match image

    A type of anemone? 

    No-one knows if you've done your housework, but everyone knows if you've done your gardening !

    Tree peony?

    The flower looks like an Anemone, same in the pic I've posted below (from the internet) but the leaves aren't the same?

    The centre seed pod formation looks like my tree peony as do the leaves

    I agree with Mark.  The leaves look identical to ones in a tree paeony search.  Very pretty.

    I don't want to upset KEF, but I agree. The leaves are like the tree peony Nut gave me image I have also observed that a lot of peony flowers look a but like roses. image

    And as it was near my house I hope I'm right image

    I've googled Tree Peony and agree with that, thank you everyone.  That's another for the 'must have' list (I don't know what I'll do if OH decides not to get a season ticket!!).

    I've looked at the RHS info and they quite easy to care for so that's ok for me and best planter in Autumn.....perfect image
