If Mainz ever needs....#1379

....its own National State City Flower, I think I've found it!

It's Paeonia suffruticosa or the tree peony aka Narrenkappius officinalis.

The blossom's a treat, but if you wait a bit, you're rewarded by a dead ringer of the thing that hard-core Karnevalista transport around on their heads.
