Paeonia 'Kokuryunishiki'

It arrived in this spring from the Staudengärnerei Gräfin von Zeppelin. A Japanese paeonia hybrid. Its Japanese origin is important, because the Chinese breeds – which are sold everywhere, often for extremely high price – are not frost-resistant, while the Japanese ones are. However, they are rarely found in Hungary. This German nursery offers a large number of Japanese hybrids that are surely frost-resistant even at us. They send beautiful and strong plants. This one, for example, already bloomed in the year when I received it. This is how it looked in this year. I guess now I managed to make a photo that shows its real color.
