more from the wittmaniana group

Today saw the first flower of the year on Paeonia macrophylla, the Largeleaf Peony. Classified by some botanists as Paeonia wittmanniana var macrophylla, it is similar to P steveniana (which some classify as Paeonia wittmanniana var nudicarpa). My plants have similar but paler flowers and distinctly larger leafs with a more substantial texture to them.

For a comparison, here is a pic of the leaf of my Paeonia steveniana:
