Herbaceous Paeonia Catalog Pages
Cultivars beginning:  A-F | G-M | N-R | S-Z | Species

also see:  Peony Culture | About Herbaceous Peonies | Current Plant Introductions| Woody Catalog | Intersectional Catalog 
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.

Nosegay. 
Saunders.  1950.  One of our all time favorite medium to small plants!  The single flowers are a soft cream overlaid in pink with a ring of gold stamens wrapping bright pink stigmas.  The flower is elegant and quite feminine.  Bloom is very early and fills that void for peony flowers we've missed all winter.   Plants have finely cut foliage that is quite distinct.  Stem strength is excellent, but foliage begins to go dormant earlier than many peonies.  Fertile both ways.  F2(mlokoswetchii x tenufolia).  Week 1-2 bloom time.  Adventitious roots. Excellent.

Pastelegance.  Seidl.  1989.  Herbaceous hybrid.  APS 'Best In Show'-2016.  Pastelegance is perhaps the finest peony available on the market today.  The double champagne cream with pink highlighted flowers are quite unique for color and will not be confused with anything else.  Large rounded guard petals surround a central mass of well shaped and ruffled petals.  The central flower petals often appear layered and swirled, while the guards are always flat and rounded.  Foliage is a dark blue-green and leaves are wide.  Stems are sturdy, but minor support is beneficial.  Pastelegance is the pinnacle of Bill Seidl's herbaceous hybrid breeding and is only now finding it's way into gardens around the world. Pricey due to demand and supply.  A supreme show flower.  Solaris Farms won 'Queen of the Show' at the 2016 APS Convention with this cultivar.  Week 4-5 bloom time.  Fertile both ways (easy).    (Salmon Dream x Lemon Chiffon)

Pesnia Vetra.  Unkown hybridizer.  Herbaceous hybrid. This is a tenufolia hybrid with very fine foliage and a typical red single flower.  Foliage is much narrower and longer than most other fernleaf hybrids.  Height is about 24", making it a bit taller and larger than most tenufolia hybrids with fern-like leaves.  Pesnia Vetra is also more forgiving in its cultural needs, making it a good choice for people that struggle with the species.  We purchased this plant from a Latvian grower some years ago.  Something different if you enjoy fern leaf hybrids.  Week 3 bloom time.  No fertility noted as yet.

Petite Elegance.
  Klehm.  1995.  Lactiflora cultivar.  Soft delicate pink with ivory/cream inner glow at center of blossom and lower petals. Some raspberry streaking especially on outer edge of guard petals. Light speckling, almost delicate picotee effect.  Plants are short in stature and carry the beautiful blooms without support.  Mild fragrance.  Week 5 bloom time.
$22.00/Division
Pillow Cases.  Krekler/Klehm.  1994.  Lactiflora cultivar.  Delicate interplay of soft light pink, cream and deep pink.  Many tiny small speckles on the petals of this single flower make up the darker coloration. Petals are wide and lightly ruffled on the edges and very narrow as they meet the center.  3-4 side buds.  Good stem strength.  One of Nate's favorites.  Fertile both ways.
$24.00/Division
Pink Pom Pom.  Reath.  1991.  Lactiflora cultivar. Double flowers are a uniform dark vibrant pink that fade over time.  Large flat guard petals surround a ruffled mass of closely formed petaloids.  No support required.  30" to 34" in height.  Seed fertility with effort. Week 5 bloom time.  Excellent.
$22.00/Division
Pink Vanguard.  Seidl/Hollingsworth.  2005.  Herbaceous hybrid.  Flowers are single to semi-double and have a cool pink coloration. Pink Vanguard blooms in the middle part of the early season and is quite resistant to frost damage.  Leaves are wide, deep blue green and stems are strong.   Plant height is approximately 33".  Much used in hybridizing and a fine plant in its own right.  Fertile both ways.  Week 3-4 bloom time.  (Blushing Princess x Salmon Dream).
$28.00/Division
Rabbie.  Seidl/Bremer.  2016.  Seedling number LSW-1.  Herbaceous hybrid.  Named to honor Scottish poet and lyricist Robert Burns.  The single scarlet red flowers of Rabbie have 12 petals and are arranged in 2 rows.  Petals have an obcordate notch.  Carpels are covered  in tiny white hairs.  Stigmas and stamens are red. The bright yellow anthers really set of the flower.  Flowers are small and held on 24" sturdy stems.  Foliage is deeply cut with many pointed lobes per leaf.  Fertile with other diploids.  Early blooming.  (Laddie x Sparkling Windflower).

Red Charm.  Glasscock.  1944.  Herbaceous hybrid.  American Peony Society Gold Medal winner-1956.  APS 'Best In Show'-1951, 1965.  Red Charm is a huge double red.  Flowers are stunning due to the color saturation, number of petals and size.  Texture is of the flower is that of plastic.  The 36" stems are strong and hold the large blooms erect, for the most part.  Foliage is deep green and healthy, but may begin to show wear and tare late in the season. Red Charm is one of the more popular modern hybrids and should definitely get consideration by anyone that wants to grow peonies.  We've not seen seed, but others report production. Week 4-5 bloom time. (lactiflora x officinalis)

Red Windflower.
  Seidl.  1981.  Herbaceous hybrid.  Red Windflower is a short plant with red single flowers.  Flowers face upward and are carried thick stems that lean away from the center of the plant.  The 'Windflower' portion of the name may not be appropriate as the plants are not tall and airy, but the foliage is deeply lobed finely cut.  An interesting plant for the gardener and hybridizer alike. Vigorous growers to about 22 inches.  Highly fertile and has produced some fine seedlings.  Makes odd shaped divisions, generally one root with a crown.  Seedling #76LSW-3.  (Laddie x Sparkling Windflower)

Requiem. Saunders.  1941.  Herbaceous hybrid.  Single opaque and waxy white flowers are of great beauty.  Often opens with a pink blush that quickly fades away.  Petals ruffle lightly at the edges.  Red stigmas, green carpels and yellow stamens stained red at their bases.  34" height.  Excellent.  Week 4 bloom time.  No fertility noted.  (lactiflora x macrophylla).  Excellent performer.

Rosedale. 
Auten.  1936.  Herbaceous hybrid.  Clear medium dark red double.  Plants are short with stiff stems.  A vigorous grower that is a departure from large growing red doubles.  This is a seldom available cultivar and should be ranked highly for all of its superior plant characteristics and an extremely  beautiful flower.  No fertility.  Adventitious from blind roots.  (officinalis x lactiflora).

Roselette. Saunders.  1950.  Herbaceous hybrid. American Peony Society Award of Landscape Merit.  A sweet flower with clear pink, textured petals framing yellow stamens and red stigmas.   Rosellete is a very early blooming cultivar that starts the season off with flash of color (generally one of our earliest large flowers to bloom).  Plants are strong erect growers that present their large circular flowers skyward.  35" height.  Brilliant red stigmas framed with bright yellow stamens and anthers.  Green pubescent carpels.  One of the best and most under appreciated peonies we grow. Perhaps, it blooms so early few people see it.  Rarely produces seed.  Probably triploid.  Week 2 bloom time. (lactiflora x F2 (tenuifolia x mlokosewitsch))

Necromancer.  Bremer. 2016.  Lactiflora cultivar.  Seedling number #NB-H17.  Very light fragrance.  Double magenta flowers with notched petals and small wavy edges.  Central petals are often streaked and tipped inwhite.  Red stigmas and yellow filaments.  Up to 2 side buds for extended bloom.  Foliage and stems are black-red for an extended time after emergence.  As buds begin to grow foliage turns from black-red to deep green;  stems and petioles retain their dark coloring throughout the summer.  The sturdy 31" stems require no assisting support.  This cultivar would make a great contrast with foliage of lime green coloration.  A beautiful plant both in and out of bloom.   Fertile both ways.  (Magenta gem x unknown).

Old Faithful.  Glasscock/Falk.  1964.   Herbaceous hybrid.  American Peony Society Award of Landscape Merit.  American Peony Society Gold Medal-1997.  Old Faithful is a late blooming red hybrid.  Flowers are large and double.  Stem strength is outstanding and hold the large flowers upright very well.  Foliage is good deep green that is a perfect backdrop to the flowers.  Approximately 36" in height.  Roots become very large after a short time and division is often difficult due to unusual crown configurations.  Old Faithful is a slow increaser, but worth growing.  Produces large roots that create big ugly divisions.  Takes a couple of years to make a nice looking clump.  A fourth generation Glasscock hybrid.  Week 5 bloom time. Unknown parentage.  Fertile both ways.

Old Farmstead.  (probably Fadeaway).  Not registered.  Herbaceous hybrid.  Old Farmstead is a fern leaf hybrid that was found growing on an old farm here in Northeast Wisconsin.  The flowers open a deep pink and then fade to a lighter pink with age.  Green carpels, pink stigmas and stamens. Foliage is very finely cut and ornamental. Old Farmstead is a vigorous grower that performs very well on our clay soils.  Bloom is early and abundant.  Somewhat adventitious roots.  Foliage is finely cut and quite 'fern-like', but a bit more course than the species tenufolia.  Plant height is 15" to 18".  Sometimes pollen can be gathered and we have successfully crossed it with Little Corporal, but resulting seedlings have all been sterile--also quite beautiful.  Week 3 bloom time.  Unknown parentage.
