All peonies are shipped as dormant divisions and grafted plants in late September and early October, the appropriate time for planting peonies.  Please see our cultural pages for planting and care instructions.  We do not ship peonies in the spring.  Order early for best selection.  This catalog will close in early August 2019 to allow time for field selection, processing and digging.   New introductions normally sell out very quickly, but will be available in few years if you miss out.  First come first serve, no reservations.

Fire Down Below.  Bremer. 2019. Advanced generation lutea hybrid.  Seedling number:  #NB-SH95.  Parentage is KC Red x NB37. NB37= (Autumn Harvest x G'Day Mate). Named for brilliant red blended flowers which are reminiscent of molten rock.  Flowers are semi-double red-rose-orange blend with ruffled notched petals.
