I include plants with orange flowers under this name, but, as noted under var. delavayi f. lutea.... these may be the result of hybridisation between plants with red and yellow flowers, so this inclusion is more or less arbitrary.

Like the type, it is stoloniferous. This botanical variety differs from the type in that its segments and lobes are more oblong and shortly acuminate. The flowers are yellow and do not open widely but are shaped more like the flowers of Trollius. For this reason it might be ·called the globe-flowered tree peony, but it seems more likely to be called Forrest's tree peony. The flowers are also held more erect than those of the type. It is a more effective plant than most plants of P. lutea because the flowers stand up well above the foliage. Collected by Père Monbeig and by Forrest on Mekong-Yangtse Divide. Introduced into commerce by Ruys 1939 as P. forresti.

Similar differences of opinion greeted later discoveries by the botanist, Potanin, and the great explorer, George Forrest.....Forrest's plant, a yellow, got into the trade under the name P. forresti, and then Stapf in another unpublished paper called it P. trollioides because its cup-shaped flowers reminded him of the genus Trollius. The National Horticultural Magazine, in 1934, under a photograph by Silvia Saunders, coupled the two names, and then Stern decided the plant was merely a botanical variety of P. potanini.
