Thanks, Dave, Lesley,

I have quite a few double tree peonies, but the singles are really my favs.  Godaishu and Hakuo Jishi are two other whites I love.  Lesley, your japanese is pretty good.

The singles are my favourites too, Jamie, so papery in the sunlight with those wonderful stamens.... a lovely close up of Renkaku-ki, thanks.

Tree peonies are in flower here at the moment. I have attached some pictures from my garden.

Not really alpines with these flowers measuring around 8 inches diameter.
Strawberry Delight has a very nice scent as well.

Sumptuous flower heads, Andre, Corsair is so rich satin looking and your photo of Icestorm is like a Rembrandt painting!

André,

those are stupendous.  I've never seen any of them available.  A nice change from the classic cultivars.  I tried 'Black Pirate', a relative to 'Corsair', but it just dwindled away.  Do you know who is propagating the Daphnis hybrids in Europe?  I really must learn to graft paeonies.

Jamie,
As far as i am aware only Jean-Luc Rivière in Crest, France grafts amongst others some Daphnis cultivars on a regular basis. In Germany I know of Mr. Giessler. I do not have his address at hand but can pm it to You later if you are interested. Further in Germany there used to be Mr. Parlasca (Frankfurt) who imported from the US but I do not know whether he or his son, who toke over the bussiness, is still selling tree peonies.
I have tried grafting myself a couple of times but results are at best erratic and a source of good clean rootstock (ususally lactiflora) to graft on is difficult to find.

....and the biggest flowers of all species peonies ( more than 20 cm )
