They come in white and many shades of pink and red. The more important differences is in the bloom forms. The open forms that I’m showing are called ‘semi-double’ which looks a bit like a rose bud before they open fully. There are peony forms, which have intermingled petals, stamens, and petaloids. The peony form that I have is a dark red called ‘Blood of China.’ I don’t know the names of the others here, except for ‘Mathotiana’ which is a rose form double that blooms early and gets cold nipped a lot.
