I've been transplanting these peonies from house to house since I was a kid (30 years ago) after I got them from my grandmother. They are pink and smell better than any peony I've ever smelled. Can anyone help me identify them?

Thanks,

David welcome to the peonies forum. I hope that the experts will chime in and give you a name of your beautiful peony. It's gorgeous, what a great way to honor your grandmother. Annette

Try this website: http://www.peonyparadise.com aka Adelman peony Gardens. Maybe send for their 2012 catalog. It is in color and maybe you will recognize your Granmother's peony. It is beautiful! What is its bloom time?

It's gorgeous. How smart you were to keep it all this time. While you wait to find its real name, I think you should just call it "Beauty".

A detailed, close up of the flower center would be very helpful in trying to ID it.
