Sappho. Daphnis. 1995. Lutea hybrid. The single to semi-double medium sized flowers are a light lavender-purple color (very unusual). Petals are lightly ruffled and crimped. Stigmas cream. Sheath is often incomplete with white and lavender coloration. Filaments are light maroon. Carriage is good over medium-dark green foliage. Plants do not produce abundant ground shoots and do not increase quickly. Stems are often winter killed, but are replaced from the base of the plant. Sappho is in high demand by collectors of Daphnis peonies and is rare in cultivation. Ships in late September to mid October.
