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.

Satin Rouge.  Lemoine.  1926.  F1 lutea hybrid. Beautiful, large, heavy full double of rich reddish-coral tone that overlays a cream base.  Flowers tend to hang downward and into the foliage like many of the old double French hybrids.  Foliage is large, wide and of deep blue green.  Side buds are produced.  Easy and very fast grower.  No fertility.  Medium height mound formed plants.  May have a different plant habit in warmer climates where stems are not damaged due to winter.    Parentage unknown.

Savage Splendor.  Saunders.  F1 lutea hybrid.  Large single of ivory flowers, veined and edged with a deep rose and lavender. Flares are a deeper, darker rose and stamens are coarse and golden. Each petal is uniquely twisted and ruffled.  Plants are rapid growers and produce many ground shoots.  Stems are not particularly hardy in Wisconsin, but reliably re-grow each season producing a multitude of flowers.  Best for zones 4b and warmer.  (unknown x unknown).  No fertility.

Sedona.  Seidl/Bremer.  2013.  Advanced generation lutea hybrid.  Seedling #50.  Semi-double to single.  Color is a blend that often looks like the Sedona red rock in Arizona.  Pink stigmas, red sheath and stamens.  The plant is heavy blooming and often produces 3 buds to a stem.  Fertility is very high and seedlings are among the best we've seen from any cultivar.  Crossed with Rosalind Elsie Franklin, we have produced numerous future registrations.  Flowers on Sedona do hang and bend downward, but the plants are stunning when in bloom.  Sedona produces many ground shoots well away from the original plant after a time.  One of my favorite plants for many reasons.  Long bloom season due to secondary shoots flowering well after others have finished blooming.  Not easy to graft due to the low percentage of terminals produced (most stems flower).  Easy seed setter and great pollen.  (#8 x #11 (D223 x Chinese Dragon

 Theresa Griesbach/Seidl.  Unregistered.  Advanced generation lutea hybrid. (Anna Marie x Rosalind Elsie Franklin) Garden named 'Hanako-Chan by Bill Seidl.  From seed grown by Theresa Griesbach and named for her mother. Hana means flower, ko means girl, chan is a term of endearment. Early foliage is somewhat chartreuse-green, changing to typical green later. Pinkish-lavender; maybe more lavender-purple under certain conditions. Outside it fades lighter. Dark burgundy flares, filaments are red, no anthers, deep pink. No sheath and has 7-8 smooth grass-green carpels, which form a perfect circle. Hence, Bill Seidl also calls it Seven Green Turtles Bobbing on a Pink Sea.  Form is single to semi-double, with petal edges scalloped, sometimes crinkled and folded inwards. Foliage, plant habit and flowers all have characteristics of a rockii hybrid, although parentage is of advanced generation lutea hybrid.  Tallish plants with stiff upward growing stems, reminiscent of rockii types.  It seed parent, Anna Marie, produces wide ranging leaf structures in its seedlings, as well as, unusual flower forms.  Floriferous and many laterals will bloom.  No pollen to date.

  Japan.  Japanese suffruticosa.  Semi-double, red and white striped flowers, sometimes all red or pink or pink and red or white etc...  May bloom all red for a couple of years only to bloom with striping the next.  A hardy plant, but should be planted in a well ventilated area to prevent disease from wet/humid conditons.  Reported as a mutation of the cultivar 'Taiyo'.  Consistently inconsistent. Superior to all other floral variegations in woody peonies.  Fertile both ways.

Seidl #100. 
Seidl.  Advanced generation lutea hybrid.  Nice single pink flowers with a mass of long golden stamens encircling the carpels.  Striking buds look like a rose unfurling.  Plants are low growing and spreading to 6 feet in 10 years.  Pollen fertility and occasional seed.  (#11 x Golden Era).  Very good.

Shimatsubeni.  Japan. Japanese suffruticosa.  Shimatsubeni has huge full formed red semi-double flowers with petals that are highly ruffled.  Flowers can reach 10 inches in diameter.  The coloration is not as bright as Taiyo, but deeper and does not fade like so many of the other reds.  Plants reach a height of around 4 feet in Wisconsin and have excellent hardy stems.  It must be planted in a well ventilated area to prevent disease, like all of the other suffruticosas.   Plants have excellent foliage and are consistent bloomers each year.  This is the best red suffruticosa in our opinion for form and color.  Shimatsubeni is rarely available and is an outstanding plant for the collector of fine peonies.

Spring Carnival.
  Saunders.  1944.  F1 lutea hybrid.  Single golden blossoms edged and suffused with red and rose A very pleasing combination with dark inner petal flares. A strong and vigorous grower that may lose stems during cold winters, only to be replaced quickly the next growing season.  No fertility.  Excellent large upright plants after a few years of growth.  This plant produces large amounts of ground shoots annually which make a large full foliaged shrub.  A good choice for areas that have warmer winter conditions than hardiness zone 4 in Wisconsin.
