That image looks correct. Paeonia mairei comes out of the ground with the flower buds first and opening shortly thereafter in stark contrast to all the other species I know of. Mine here in TN are coming through now and have the pink petals already visible.

A friend sent me this peony image today: it's labeled Paeonia mairei. I don't grow that species, but other images of it on the web are not at all like this. 

Any comments?
