Cultivars beginning with... A-G| H-L | M-R | S | T-Z
also see:  Peony Culture | About Woody Peonies | Current Plant Introductions  | Herbaceous Catalog| Intersectional Catalog
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.  Please note that lutea hybrids typically do not grow over 4’ in Wisconsin due to winter kill of stems, but reliably regrow and bloom on basal buds.  They may grow taller in more reasonable climates.   Sizes:  Premium Plants:  4 to 5 year old grafted plants or divisions from larger plants which should bloom within a year or two, often the season after planting.  Select Plants: 3 year grafted plants which should bloom a year or two after planting, sometimes the next season.

Angel Emily.  Seidl/Bremer.  2013.   American rockii-suffruticosa lineage hybrid.    Sdlg. # MRV-12.   Pinkish-lavender  with dark purple flares.  Filaments are 5/8 inches long, purple at base becoming whitish near the anthers.  Dark reddish-purple sheath completely covers the carpels.  Red stigma;. Flower form is usually semi-double, 15 petals plus.  Six to eight inches in diameter.  The well established mother plant, about 20 years in the same place,  is 5 1/2 feet high, 8  feet across, and  bears 80+ flowers annualy.  It is restricted on one side; otherwise it could bear up to 120 blooms or more. An nine year old plant at Solaris Farms produced 45 flowers in 2013.   Foliage is typical, but leaflets are on the small side of the spectrum for plants classed as rockii hybrids. Easily fertile both ways.   Roger Anderson's 'Angel Choir' is a sibling.  Seed cross was made and grown to adult by Bill Seidl of Manitowoc Wisconsin.  Propagation, registration and initial distribution of Angel Emily is being carried out by Nate Bremer of Solaris Farms, Reedsville, Wisconsin. Fertile.   (Rock's Variety x  Shintenchi).  Propagation through grafting is slow, presumably due to Angel Emily’s habit of blooming on nearly all active buds in a season (few if any terminals are ever produced).  Growth is initially slow in grafted plants, but increases as plants become established.  Stems are very woody, long lived and are cold hardy.  Winter damage has not been noted to date.  Foliage is ornamental in color and form and may be a good candidate for permanent landscaping.  Recommended for cold winter climates.

Aquarius.  Bremer.  2019.  Advanced generation lutea hybrid.  (Theresa Ann x Autumn Harvest).  Seedling number is 'NB32'.   Certificate of Merit at APS 2016 Exhibition. Heavy full double of rose/yellow/cream/peach blends. Short red flares are not visible.  Wide outer petals, center petals are smaller with notches and are highly ruffled. The petals twist and turn at the center creating a full double form. Flower carriage on plants in outward and downward. Flowers are large and heavy causing carriage to be more downward than I would like, but is acceptable.  Has unusual strong citrus scent. Pink stigmas and filaments are red at their base. Sheath is light red. Average amount of bloom for a lutea hybrid. Usually has one terminal and two side buds.  Fertile both ways, but pollen is easier. Foliage is deep green. Plants reach 3 feet in Wisconsin and can lose stems in cold winters, which easily regrow from ground shoots. Foliage is wide and deeply cut with slight red coloration on the upper surface of the petioles. Aquarius is a constellation of the zodiac, situated between Capricornus and Pisces. Its name is Latin for "water-carrier" or "cup-carrier".    It is a great cut flower for floating in water and provides a wonderful scent to a room.  Limited.  One per customer as supply lasts.

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. Flower color is difficult to describe, but is brilliant and will not be confused with other cultivars. As petals expand many small ruffles appear along the edges. Red stigmas, filaments and sheath. 1 to 2 buds per stem (we have seen 3 on occasion). Bloom stems are long and carry buds outward. Foliage is much more finely cut than most advanced generation lutea hybrids, highly lobed and deep blue green. Plants produce excellent numbers of ground shoots. Stem hardiness from cold winters is average, but easily regrow and bloom the year after loss. Exciting breeding potential due to flower color and foliage habit. Shorter plants for us to approximately 34 inches in Wisconsin. Fertile both ways. As further generations of lutea hybrids are produced, greater fertility is being seen and Fire Down Below is an example of such plants.  Limited.  One per customer as supply lasts.
