GAY PAREE (Auten, 1933) Anemone type Japanese, midseason. Always an attractive flower. The color, as in many peonies, seems to be affected by soil and climate. M sources describe it as cerise, with a white center, we have found the colors to be usually darker here, with the guard petals mauve pink, and the center petaloids cream, splashed with some of the petal color. Well known, and very popular
