Solaris Farms has completed taking peony orders 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.

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 early.   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. The early bloom time is welcome after a long winter of looking at a brown field!

Old Farmstead.  Unknown/Bremer.  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 are single and hot red-pink in color.  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.

Paladin.  Saunders.  1950.  Herbaceous hybrid.  Paladin produces carmine to cerise red colored single flowers.  The flowers often display themselves as cupped or tulip formed, which is extremely attractive.   Plants are dwarf in size and have beautiful wide, deep green foliage.  A good plant for the front of the garden as it is rather short (18-20 inches).   Roots are adventitious. Week 4 bloom time.  No fertility noted.
(lactiflora #1875 x peregrina -Perry-)

Pastelegance.  Seidl.  1989.  Herbaceous hybrid.  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 and carry the large ornate flowers easily.  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 fernleaf 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.
$24.00/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.
$20.00/Division

$20.00/Division
Red Charm.  Glasscock.  1944.  Herbaceous hybrid.  APS Gold Medal winner.  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)
$22.00/Division
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)

Roselette. Saunders.  1950.  ALM.  Herbaceous hybrid.  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))
$22.00/Division

Nova.
  Saunders.  1950.  Nova has simple cream colored single flowers of medium size.  This one has no hints of pink in the segments and leans to the yellow side.   It is a reliable early bloomer that has nice medium green foliage. Plants grow rather slowly and resent division/transplant in our experience.   A collectors plant that is seldom available.  No fertility noted on this plant.   F2 (mlokosewitschi x macrophylla).

Old Soldier.  Seidl/Bremer.  2016.  Herbaceous hybrid.  Seedling  number is #74H120-6.  Tetraploid.  Large medium red semi-double flowers, carried on thick heavy 28" to 32" stems that do not require staking.  Flowers fade to a pink-red as they age.  Light green carpels, pink stigmas and yellow filaments.  Old Soldiers leaves are deep green and broad.  A fast growing plant that is highly fertile both ways and produces some of the largest seed we have seen in herbaceous hybrids.  Plants go dormant at the end of September.  Very good double seedlings of bright pink coloration are in evaluation from this plant.   (Blushing Princess x Pehrson's Sable-Eclipse hybrid.)  Week 3-4 bloom time. 
$200.00/Division
Pastelorama.  Seidl/Bremer.  2013.  Herbaceous hybrid.  Pastelorama has had limited distribution over the years and is seldom available.  The very large double flowers are pastel pink in coloration; some would describe it as antique pink. Flowers have excellent carriage on top of sturdy stems.  Plants reach a height of 36 or more inches and have wide medium green foliage.  This fertile tetraploid has produced many fine seedlings for us that may be future introductions.  Pastelorama generally produces one bud per stem, but may have as many as three.  My favorite Seidl herbaceous hybrid and always in high demand.  Week 4-5 bloom time.  (Salmon Dream x Roger Anderson Seedling).  Week 4-5 bloom time.  Just a few left, domestic orders only.

Peter Brand.  Brand.  Lactiflora cultivar.  Peter Brand is dark shiny red double of excellent confirmation.   The plant is seldom seen in American collections, but should be grown widely for its rich coloration and good plant habits.   Nice deep green foliage carried on sturdy stems.  Little or no fragrance noted and not fertile to our knowledge.  If you are looking for a deep red, this is a great choice.  Week 5-6 bloom time.

Red Hot Babe.  Bremer.  2016.  Herbaceous hybrid.  No seedling number, was garden named  'Red Hot Babe'.  This was the first plant to bloom in a group of seedlings from the cross of (Little Corporal x Old Farmstead).  The very large single flowers are a brilliant hot pink-red.  Petal shape can be wildly variable from year to year, sometimes relatively flat other times reflex back along the edges. Petals also show variable amounts of notching.  Flowers are most often circular in form and are born on long stems that nod.  Carpels have a white hairy surface and stigmas are large and bright red.  Stamens are yellow and do sparingly produce pollen, which we have not tested for fertility.  The plant is likely a triploid (cross of tetraploid x diploid), thus fertility is likely low or not existent.  Early mid season bloom time.  The 27" plant with spreading stems are a novelty that is quite beautiful.  Foliage is deep green and deeply cut.
