Angel Emily

Bremer, Seidl



Angel Emily.  Seidl/Bremer. 2013.  P. rockii influence hybrid. Sdlg. # MRV-12. Pinkish-lavender with dark purple flares. Filaments are 5/8 inches long, purple at base becoming whitish near the anthers. Dark reddish-purple sheath completely covers the carpels. Red stigma;. Flower form is usually semi-double, 15 petals plus. Six to eight inches in diameter. The well established mother plant, about 20 years in the same place, is 6 feet high, 8 feet across, and bears 80+ flowers annualy. It is restricted on one side; otherwise it could bear up to 120 blooms or more. An nine year old plant at Solaris Farms produced 45 flowers in 2013.  Foliage is typical, but leaflets are on the small side of the spectrum for plants classed as rockii hybrids. Easily fertile both ways.  Roger Anderson’s ‘Angel Choir’ is a sibling. Seed cross was made and grown to adult by Bill Seidl of Manitowoc Wisconsin. Propagation, registration and initial distribution of Angel Emily is being carried out by Nate Bremer of Solaris Farms, Reedsville, Wisconsin. Fertile. (Rock’s Variety x  Shintenchi). Propagation through grafting is slow, presumably due to Angel Emily’s habit of blooming on nearly all active buds in a season (few if any terminals are ever produced). Growth is initially slow in grafted plants, but increases as plants become established. Stems are very woody, long lived and are cold hardy. Winter damage has not been noted to date. Foliage is ornamental in color and form and may be a good candidate for permanent landscaping. Recommended for cold winter climates.  American Peony Society Gold Medal winner – 2018.  Ships in late September to mid October.
