Woody Paeonia Catalog Pages (tree or shrub peony)
Cultivars beginning with... A-G| H-L | M-R | S | T-Z

All peonies are shipped as dormant divisions and grafted plants in late September and early October, the appropriate time for planting.  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 2018 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:  (1) 3 Year Grafted Plants are often beginning to grow their own roots, but still require some time on the nurse root.  They will likely bloom within a year or two of planting.  (2) 4 and 5 Year Grafted plants are larger and will likely bloom within a year. They will also likely have their own roots.  (3) Divisions from Large Plants almost always have their own roots and are most likely to bloom within a year.  Note:  Larger plants and divisions often take a year longer to establish compared to young grafts.  Note:  Solaris Farms uses non-adventitious rootstock on our grafts, thus herbaceous growth will not be seen or compete with the woody portion of the plant.

Nike.  (Goddess of Victory)  Daphnis.  1985.  Advanced generation lutea hybrid.  Coral peach flower (some years it is tea colored) with two rows of well-formed round petals that have a golden glow. It has pronounced red flares.  Cream stigmas and red stamens.  Strong woody plants produce deep green broad foliage with fine notches along the edge.  Strong growers that move right along.  Bloom is average in amount, but adequate.  As flowers age they become tea colored and are quite stunning.  Plants are upright and produce upward to outward facing flowers.  Seed fertility which is challenging.  (BC2 x 'Guardian of the Monastery').

Pluto.  (God of the Underworld)  Daphnis.  1987.  Advanced generation lutea hybrid.  Very large semi-double flowers of very dark clear red with nearly black flares.  Petals are very ruffled and fringed with many notches.   Flowers glow and have an outstanding form.  Plants are relatively short, but are good growers.  Many ground shoots produced on plants that lack a uniform growth pattern.  I would not be without this plant in my garden for flower beauty.  Challenging fertility, but doable.   (Corsair x ?)  Not commonly available and one of the best deep red flowered woody peonies.

Saunders.  1948.  F1 lutea hybrid.  Rose/copper blend.  Flowers open cream, edged in pink and then fade to a more uniform color.  Pink stigmas, red sheath and stamens.  Extremely good flower producer. Flowers are outward facing and are held on tall plants that make them easily viewed. Plants become large and rounded.  Stem hardiness is not very good and plants often loose stems from winter kill, but quickly regrow from basal buds.  Excellent fast grower that can produce 4 feet or more of stem growth in a single year.  Foliage is finely cut.  Very good. No fertility noted.  Parentage unknown.

These are grafted plants and are guaranteed to be authentic (no surprises).  Often sold as Paeonia rockii, but it is actually a hybrid of unknown parentage.  Sold as Rock's Variety and Joseph Rock.  Fertile and a superior parent.

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).   
Divisions from Larger Plants $180.00
Moonlit Castle Ruins.  Seidl/Bremer.  2018.  Advanced generation lutea hybrid.  (Seidl #1 x D223).  Seedling number is Seidl #64.  Large waxy, heavy, semi-double to double cream flowers with small dark red flares.  Somewhat nodding flowers, but stunning!  Plants have a rather short stature and are clothed to ground in large deep green foliage.  Bill Seidl named this plant for its rather dreamy colored flowers.  Cream stigmas and sheath.  Light red filaments and yellow waxy anthers.  We have an isolated mutation that displays yellow-green variegated foliage.   Reluctant seed producer and no pollen.  A much admired flower by many visitors over the years.  Moonlit Castle Ruins is easily grown, but is not readily propagated through grafting and division.  The plants are rather low growers to 30", but may attain greater heights in climates with less extreme winters.  This plant has been lightly distributed under the seedling number (#64) and as 'Moonlit Castle Ruins'.  Only a couple available.  One plant per order.
