Can anyone identify this plant? Thankyou.




It could be the seedhead of Peonia mascula. At the early stage, just wait when it will ripe. Fantastic. Will try to post my pic today.

If it is a seed pod, it looks like it is already ripe, burst open, and displaying the seeds for transport! Maybe Paeonia mlokosewitschii?

Have posted mine yesterday.

Pretty, Kasy! I guess that the black ones are viable? The shape of the pod on P. mlokosewitschii seems to fit better, but the foliage doesn't fit as well as your P. mascula. I wonder if they hybridise? : )

To be honest don't know much about them... Geffrye Museum in London was the only place I've seen them.
