Paeonia obovata with a lovely Easter egg bud

I like this peony primarily for its fruit, but the flowers are nice and when they are white, as this one is, they nicely set off the interesting matte foliage that has reddish tints in spring. We have this growing nicely in various locations in quite deep deciduous shade.

This is lovely and makes me realize it (or something similar I could actually obtain!) might work in my front moss garden remake. Do you think it could take zone 8a and wet, wet, wet winter conditions?
