Solaris Farms has completed taking peony order for the 2018 season.  Thank you to all that have ordered.  Our new offerings for 2019 will appear on this website in January 2019.  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.

Fertile both ways.  (Pink Vangard x Salmon Dream). Bill Seidl garden named this plant 'Just Peachy' eight years ago, after it had been growing in his garden for some 30 years.  His interest in hybridizing herbaceous peonies took a break for an extended period. Just Peachy, along with numerous others were allowed to grow into very large clumps.  He realized that a renewed interest in peonies was building and discovered he had many hidden gems.  Around 2000 the internet became more accessible and Bill began to frequent forums and correspond with other enthusiasts.  He enjoyed the communications and this helped him to realize the treasures in his garden.   Just Peachy is a good example of Bill's renewed interest due to his ability to correspond with others through electronic media.  He truly enjoyed the many new friends that he made through the many emails and forums that the internet afforded.  Just Peachy was a plant that Bill believed had a large upside to hybridizing and would be a great garden plant for the peony enthusiast.

Little Corporal.  Seidl/Bremer.  2013.  Originated and named by William Seidl of Manitowoc, Wisconsin.  Registered, propagated and distributed by Nate Bremer of Solaris Farms, Reedsville, Wisconsin.  Named for the stature of Napoleon Bonaparte.  The Little Corporal is a short plant that reaches a maximum height of 20 inches.  Foliage is broad with points and is a deep green.  Foliage, stature and flower are unique and will not be confused with other reds from P. peregrina lineage.  One brilliant single rose red flower is carried on a sturdy stem.  Flowers have a large ring of yellow stamens carried on white filaments with red bases. Carpels are green tipped with rose red stigmas. Entire flower is very symmetric.  Flowers face upward.  Bloom period is early-mid season.  Plants are fast growing and floriferous.  Easily produces seed, but no pollen.  Of interest for hybridizing due to unusual pedigree.  Little Corporal’s pod parent, Roselegance is extinct and is the product of (Salmon Dream x Lemon Chiffon).  Crossed with Seidl seedling LSW6 (Laddie x Sparkling Windflower), a single red.  Genetics for double flowers are contained within ‘The Little Corporal’ via Roselegance and this has been proven out in crosses at Solaris Farms.  As a short front of the garden peony it is outstanding for color and plant form.  Could easily be used in rock gardens.  Little Corporal's seedling number was #RELSW 6.  Perhaps the finest parent we have used in our hybridizing program.  Seedlings are often double or semi-double with outstanding color range.  (Roselegance x (Laddie x Sparkling Windflower)).
