Banquet

This coloration is fairly unique among Saunders woody peonies so it cannot readily be confused with any others. Hooray! I am intrigued by the reverse sides of the petals with their white flares. 

The top photo showing a flower with a more semi-double form was chosen because the carpels and stigma are more visible but most flowers are more double as shown in the lower photo.
