A Tree Peony by Daphnis (date unknown). It posesses a very dark red flower of about 8-10cm. Its parentage is interesting in that Daphnis had several forms of lutea which he used as seed parent. He simply numbered these as L1, L2,L3 etc. and for Kronos the parentage is L1 X ‘Ubatama’ The shrub is quite vigorous, but the flowers hang their heads to a marked degree. The photographs were all taken with the flower artificially propped up. Plant Source:  Gartnerei Simon
