Paeonia daurica has also been a surprisingly superb performer here...wish I could share images.

Subject: [pbs] Paeonia daurica

I hope that attaching a photo to a post is as easy as the FAQs imply. If
this worked, it shows a group of Paeonia daurica including P. daurica
ssp. daurica (dark pink, from Halda collections in the 1990s), P.
daurica ssp mlokosewitschii (light yellow flowers in laft background,
also a Halda collection), and their self-sown seedlings (cream flushed
pink), growing on sloping clay loam in the garden. The plant of P.
mlokosewitschii had similar cream-pink flowers in my former garden,
where the soil is higher in iron and potassium; when I relocated it to
my present garden, the flowers became yellow. P. daurica self-sows very
enthusiastically in this region. The big single flowers don't last as
long as double hybrids, but they are very showy in mid-spring, and the
foliage is decorative all summer. I don't generally send seed of these
to exchanges because other species grow near them (one can be seen in
the photo, the shorter plant in the background) and hybridization may occur.
