Unknown Paeony at Wisley

Hi I was at Wisley in the first half of May, and found this lovely bed of white paeonies (12-18in high) in the woodland opposite the Alpine Meadow. Unfortunately I could not find a label for it. Could someone tell me what species this is ?

Hi Jon, The bed this Paeony is in is maintained by another department so I had to go and check the computer database to try and find out about this plant. Unfortunately the records for this plant have it recorded simply as "Paeony" with no species or cultivar information given. It has now finished flowering, so unfortunately it is too late to get our botanists to attempt an identification. I could do this next year if you remind me next May. Sorry I can't be of more help. Paul

Jon, After my last note on this, Maggi Young contacted me saying she thought this plant is probably P. emodii. She asked Hans Joschko and he agreed that this is the likely identity of this Paeony. Hope this helps, and thanks to Maggi! Paul
