Late Windflower



Sold Out

Late Windflower.  Saunders.  Circa 1940.  Herbaceous hybrid.  Parentage:  P. beresowskyi (anomala or vietchii ‘alba’?) x emodi. This and the veitchi x emodi strains are so closely alike that Saunders preferred to offer them under the above names (Early Windflower, Late Windflower). The early strain blooms at the very beginning of the peony season; the other about a week later. These plants are graceful and unusual. The flowers, which are only moderate in size, resemble beautiful white anemones. They are slightly nodding and are borne on rather tall stems. The foliage is fern-like and very handsome. This is the authentic Late Windflower and is very rare.   Some seed fertility. Premium divisions ship late September to mid October.

Color: White-Cream
SPECIALTY: Fertile, Rare
