Solaris Farms has completed taking peony orders for the 2018 season.  Thank you to all that have ordered.  Our new offering for 2019 will appear on this website in January 2019.  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.  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.

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 hardier, 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.

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.

Waucedah Princess.  Reath.  1988.  Very double light lavender, mound type plant.  Heavy flowers face outward and sometimes downward.  Plants do not become tall.  Foliage is finely cut.  A profuse bloomer that will often have a couple of side buds per stem.  Stem loss to winter cold is common, but plants quickly regrow from ground shoots to bloom the same year.  Fertile both ways-seed is more challenging.  F1 lutea hybrid.
Parentage unknown.

Wisteria Reflections.  Bremer.  2016.  Advanced generation lutea hybrid.  Seedling number is #NB1.   Semi-double lavender-pink flowers that become darker toward the center.  The darker coloration leads to dark flares.  22 to 26 petals.  Petals have wavy edges and show crimping.  Stigmas pink, sheath is light pink and filaments are pink topped with golden anthers.  Very floriferous for a lutea hybrid, rivaling the suffruticosas.  Good stem hardiness with most stems flowering each year.  Grows heavy woody stems and has excellent medium green lobed leaves.  Height is around 4.5 feet in Wisconsin.  Visitors love this plant and it is one of the most in demand woody hybrids.

Xue Hai Bing Xin.  China.  Chinese rockii cultivar. Xue Hai Bing Xin has large white single flowers with maroon-black flares that have a pink blush around the flares.  Pink stigmas and sheath.  Filaments are light cream in color.  The striking flowers are carried in profusion on tall plants with outstanding foliage.  Foliage is deep blue green, finely cut and remains in outstanding condition throughout the growing season (much better than other rockii cultivars).  This is the tallest growing rockii we grow, reaching nearly 6 feet after 10 years.  Plants are taller than wide and produce a nicely vase shaped shrub.  Extremely hardy stems show no winter damage to -32F.  Like many rockii cultivars, it is slow to grow in the first year or two, but makes rapid growth once established.   Fertile both ways.

Zi Mei Cha Cui.
 China.  Unregistered with the APS.  Chinese rockii cultivar.  Zi Mei Cha Cui produces large ball shaped reddish-purple flowers carried on arching stems (not on the ground).  Dark rockii type flares are hidden by the numerous petals.  Plants reach 5 feet after 10  years and 6 to 8 feet in width.  Excellent long leaves.  Stems are very winter hardy and have survived -30F temperatures only to bloom profusely the following spring.  Very attractive and always a showpiece.  Gansu-mudan are Chinese rockii lineage hybrids.  Not easily fertile, since pollen is seldom produced and stigmas are not well formed.

Zhong Chuan Huang. 
(White Central Plains).  China.  Chinese rockii cultivar.  Full double ball shaped form with dark maroon flares. Greenish cream stigmas.  Many wavy petals with multiple notches on their edges.  Strong stems hold up the large flowers easily.  No stamens.

Zeus.  Daphnis.  Not registered with APS, but in the trade.  Advanced generation lutea hybrid.  Pink with light red veining going through each petal.  Petals are lightly ruffled and crinkled.  This flower looks nearly identical to Leda, so much so that we have a hard time differentiating them.  Plants are more upright for us than Leda and petals are perhaps a little less loose.  A gorgeous large flower.  (Kokoman x unnamed BC2)
