Treepeony? - I'm in doubt now

Do you know this peony?

It was bought 3 years ago as Paeonia suffruticosa subsp. rockii. So it was supposed to be a classic Rock's peony, it is now easy to see that so isnt the case.
Until now i thought that it was a shot from below the graft, and i looked forward to see what peony they had used for rootgrafting.
But now flowering, it seems to be a hybrid of some kind? Perhaps mislabled?
It was planted well below the surface, so i have waited 3 years to see it in bloom.
Below here on this picture you can see a real Rockii - it is the tiny peony with seedcapsules - the leaves are very different. The peony i hope you can identify is ofcource the big one above, it seems to be very healthy. 
Do you recognize it?

Update June 26 2012

Thanks for the response, there are no 100% match - but these are my candidates:

  •     Callies memory
  •     Canary brilliants
  •     Court Jester
  •     Pastel Splendor
  •     Sonoma Floozy (waw!)
Perhaps i can tell next year?


  1. None of the photos looks like P.suffruticosa subsp. rockii.

    1. Yes - thats exactly my point - The big one is something else, but do you know what it is?
