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.

Tethys. Bremer. 2017.  Advanced generation lutea hybrid. (Brassy Lady x Sedona).  Tethys is a semi-double to double medium sized old rose colored flower.  Flowers can be brighter pink coloration in years with better precipitation and cooler temperatures.  The outer petals are notched and ruffled.  When flowers are double (produced on strong terminals) the interior petals are smaller, ruffled and turn in many directions.  The petals have many small reticulations of deeper coloration, creating an multicolor affect.  Medium pink stigmas, red filaments, maroon flares and red sheath.  Typically 5 carpels.  Leaves are broad, dark green. pointed (rough sawtooth) and petioles are red .  I would like stems to be a bit harder, but plants easily re-grow from basal shoots to bloom consistently year in and out.  The real draw, for me, is the very sturdy stems that carry flowers in an upward fashion-unusual for a double lutea hybrid.   Plants have excellent pollen and seed fertility is good on semi-double flowers.  Named for the spherical moon of Saturn that is pitted and cratered, or the Titaness of Greek Mythology.  An easy to grow plant that is proving to be outstanding.

Theresa Anne.
   Seidl/Bremer.  2013.  Advanced generation lutea hybrid.  (Age of Gold x Rosalind Elsie Franklin).  Originated and named by William Seidl of Manitowoc, Wisconsin.  Ornate flowers are amber/cream with pink to rose shadings.  Very double and ruffled flowers face outward, but not down.  Good carriage on generally short plants.  Pink stigmas are visible on some flowers.  Petals are highly ruffled.  Foliage is a light green and leaflets are wide and pointed.   Foliage is dense and provides and excellent backdrop for flowers.  It can set seeds occasionally in backcrosses to members of the suffruticosa  group.  Easily grafted and fast growing.  Plants are wider than tall and over time may reach four feet if given adequate protection from cold and wind.  In the open field Theresa Anne reaches a height of 3.5 feet and blooms heavily each year.  Has been hardy at Solaris Farms in open field growing situations and other gardens in Northeast Wisconsin.  Has produced seed with suffruticosa ‘Taiyo’ and lutea hybrids.  May be useful as a short landscape shrub due to good foliage and mounded plant form.  Besides the seed-parent, Age of Gold, this origination is derived on the pollen side from Golden Era, Chinese Dragon, and Zephyrus...... superior cultivars from  Dr. David Reath,  Prof. Arthur Saunders, and Mr. Nassos Daphnis, a "Who's Who" in the breeding of  P. x lemoinei  hybrids.  At the 2016 APS flower show Theresa Ann won reserve champion, best lutea hybrid and was a notable addition to the show table.  Excellent.
