Notes:

Friend says this is a peony her parents had in their yard for 40 years plus. The leaves do not look like any peony or camellia I have ever seen. What is it?

    Those leaves certainly look rose-like to me.

    Peony. Look at the bud and leaf near the bottom left of the photo. Peonys often have a variety of leaf shapes on the same plant. Check this link for a foliage very similar to some of the leaves on your plant http://2.bp.blogspot.com/_aoagA–kNkk/SrGZMyqD9mI/AAAAAAAAAC0/H9wuq2UznRU/s1600/20090916+023.jpg This is an image form Southern Peony http://southernpeony.blogspot.com/2009/09/2009-fall-foliage.html
