Herbaceous Paeonia Catalog Pages

All peonies are shipped as dormant divisions in late September and early October, the appropriate time for planting.  Cold climate areas will receive their orders first, followed by warmer areas that will allow planting further into fall.  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. 
Carnation Bouquet.  Seidl.  1996.  Herbaceous hybrid. Flowers are double cream-pink with darker pink highlights.  Flowers will appear 'ugly' in their early stages of opening (brown and green petals), but never fail to produce superior pink coloration.  Fragrance is best described as clove scented.  Petals are ruffled and produce a large well organized display.  Carnation Bouquet is easy to grow, but will benefit from some support, as the medium sized flowers are heavy.   An excellent parent that produces both seed and pollen.  Pollen is hidden and will require time to locate.

Blood Moon.   Bremer.  2017.  Advanced generation herbaceous hybrid.  (Little Corporal x The Mackinac Grand).  The medium sized ruffled flowers of the clearest red.  The coloration is extremely rich and has a depth that is seldom seen in reds.  Plants are 30" in height and have very sturdy stems that require no support (even in shadier locations).  Foliage is very deep green, relatively wide and a perfect back drop to the vibrantly colored flowers.  Stems not visible in the clump.  The red stigmas, filaments and yellow anthers are not visible on older, more well established plants.  Pollen fertility is good, but we have been unable to set viable seed on this cultivar to date.  Bloom time is week 3-4 with lutea hybrid woody peonies.  Blood Moon has been one of the most looked at herbaceous hybrid peonies in our display garden for several  years and we are excited to get it into other peony lover's gardens.  Limited availability.  One division per customer please.

Cora Stubbs.  Krekler. 1985.  Lactiflora cultivar.  Japanese form.  Raspberry guard petals with a vanilla scoop center.  Very fragrant.  Consistent flower form and an easy grower.  Consistent and one of the better lactifloras in our opinion.  Requires no staking. Week 5 bloom time.  Seed fertility.
Dreamtime.  Seidl/Bremer.  2013.  Herbaceous hybrid.  Originated and named by William Seidl of Manitowoc, Wisconsin.  Registered, propagated and distributed by Nate Bremer of Solaris Farms, Reedsville, Wisconsin.  The seed-parent is from Blushing Princess x Salmon Dream.  Two doses of Salmon Dream are in the pedigree and is why the word "dream" is part of the cultivar name.    Seeds and pollen.  Easily fertile and sets a tremendous number of seed.   Tall, close to 4', stalwart, pink,  semi-double. Dreamtime is a very fast and vigorous grower that needs no support.  An excellent garden subject as stems are strong and foliage remains in fine shape throughout the season.  Dreamtime's seedling number was #79H5-6 and much seed was distributed under this designation.  Easily Fertile.  (Pink Vanguard x Salmon Dream).
