That's  a  great plant, fermi!
It's one I grew from seed in 1997 (I think). It's touch and go growing here because a hard frost can kill the buds but it flowers most years.
Here are pics of its neighbour Paeonia mascula russoi which flower a week earlier
cheers

"Itoh" peonies are all the rage this year - they are a range of hybrids between herbaceous and tree peonies. They die down to some small branch like structures just above ground level so I suppose that they are technically "sub-shrubs".
We visited our friend Stephen Ryan who runs "Dicksonia Rare Plants Nursery" on Mt Macedon in July and bought one from him called "Pastel Splendour" which is flowering now (still in its pot!)
