John,  As I remember there is a pink-flowered tree peony in the Japanese
Garden at the Huntington.

Years ago Jacques Hahn a garden designer with a intimate display garden  in
Sierra Madre in southern California grew, I believe, tree peonies in  large
containers so they could be forced into dormancy in the fall by withdrawing
irrigation.  That means having a back-up growing area out of "public view."
