Id please. This peony was in the garden when we moved to this house 18 years ago. It was in a very shady spot and hardly flowered at all. Took a while but I moved it last year to a sunny border and it’s much happier and now has about 20 blooms. So pretty - would love to know its name.



what is the foliage like? is it slightly shiny or dull matt as that helps with id.

Definitely shiny. I wish it were possible to add a photo - is it?

in that case it is a cultivar of P lactifolia, possibly Shirley Temple.
