Tranquil Dove. Saunders/Rogers. 1995. Herbaceous hybrid. Tranquil Dove is one of the more unique peonies we grow and is irreplaceable in our eyes. The small plants typically grow to about 28 inches, have very sturdy stems and commence flowering in the early part of bloom season. Plants have wide deep green glossy foliage. The flowers are an exquisite soft cream overlaid in pink. The pink shading is darker near the ruffled petal edges. Red filaments, yellow stamens and red stigmas create a gorgeous affect. Flowers are dainty at about 4 inches in diameter and face upward. An extra bonus comes at dividing time; the interior of the roots are a deep lavender color! Fertile both ways. Appears to be most compatible with tetraploids and has produced very interesting seedlings. (Halcyon x self). Very hardy and of easy culture. Ships in late September to mid October.
