After researching the interwebs, I deduced that it was mostly likely called 'Red Charm', which was later corroborated at the PSU Farmer's Market. All the flower vendor's had zillions of them. One of them being Adelman Peony Gardens in Salem, OR and they had a lovely catalog to take home.
So Sunday we took a drive down there to check it out.
One of the best attractions was the short walk from the parking lot to the adjacent growing fields, where you could see rows and rows of still flowering plants and walk among them. It gives a great opportunity to see the size of the plants, the foliage and the true color of the flowers.
They had a nice plant sales area. I already had a catalog to drool over for several weeks, so I knew what I wanted and had the names, colors and prices sort of figured out in my brain beforehand.

But I guess I needed more room to plant anyway.
