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.

Manchurian Promise.  Bremer.  2016.  Advanced generation lutea hybrid.  Large semi-double coral-salmon-peach blend with dark maroon flares.  Petals are highly ruffled, notched, crimped and those at the center face up.  Color is reminiscent of our Manchurian apricot tree in bloom.  Sheath is light pink as are the stigmas.  Stamens are maroon tipped with waxy yellow anthers.  Flower color can be variable from year to year presumably due to temperatures, but always attractive.  Flower substance is quite heavy and are supported by sturdy stems.  Carriage is outward.  Foliage is large and tinted in red during the early part of the growing season.  Blooms with other lutea hybrids.  Plant height is 4' and may be greater in areas that have higher winter temperatures.  Stem hardiness has been good thus far, with little winter damage.  Manchurian Promise is one of the most popular 'woodies' during spring viewing at Solaris Farms.  Seed fertility and pollen.   (Sedona x Rosalind Elsie Franklin).
