More Peony Seedpods- Carpels

For an introductory discussion of these things, see my weblog entry of July 21.

Today's photos are of the Asian species I have.

Carpels of Paeonia anomala subsp intermedia

Carpels of Paeonia veitchii.

Carpels of Paeonia obovata. Very distinctive.

Carpels of Paeonia lactiflora (plants from wild-collected seed) These are smaller because they are less weeks from flowering.
