Flowers are double cream-pink with darker pink highlights.  Flowers will appear 'ugly' in their early stages of opening (brown and green petals), but never fail to produce superior pink coloration.  Fragrance is best described as clove scented.  Petals are ruffled and produce a large well organized display.  Carnation Bouquet is easy to grow, but will benefit from some support, as the medium sized flowers are heavy.   An excellent parent that produces both seed and pollen.  Pollen is hidden and will require time to locate. 
(Blushing Princess x Sparkling Windflower)
Kreckler/Klehm.  Herbaceous Hybrid.  Unknown parentage.  Single lavender-pink blooms on compact bushes with gray-green foliage.  A very nice small rock garden type peony that has wonderfully fine cut foliage.  Not registered at this time with the APS.  Fertile both ways.  Likely an officinalis hybrid.

Cupped, white guards and a moderately full center of light canary-yellow, deepening to pale green at the base of the petals; notably fragrant. Medium tall and floriferous.  Heavy flowers require mechanical support. Excellent foliage. The general impression is a rounded, flattish globe-like flower. Dependable and well regarded for its profuse production of medium-sized blooms and its excellent garden habit.

Blonde Vision.  Hollingsworth.  2010.  Herbaceous hybrid.  (Sunny Boy x Nancy). First propagated prior to 1990. A very DOUBLE form, many petals lightly cupped and incurved in a neatly sculptured 6 inch or larger flower. The color is light yellow (RHS 4C-11C) with soft red highlights at center, pink (RHS 53D-54A) and a reddish glow from the depths of the flower, arising from red-pink flares (RHS 54A) at the petal bases, though flares themselves are normally obscured. Generally one flower per stem on a 30-34 inch spreading bush, which holds together well while in flower. While both are generally rare, some flowers will have a few natural stamens and small carpels with normal stigmas. Carpels are a creamy color, sparsely covered in fine hairs. Medium green leaflets. presumed tetraploid, Early Midseason, it flowers about the same time or shortly before Red Charm. No fragrance. No fertility noted to date.

Blood Moon.
   Bremer.  2017.  Advanced generation herbaceous hybrid.  (Little Corporal x The Mackinac Grand).  The medium sized ruffled flowers of the clearest red.  The coloration is extremely rich and has a depth that is seldom seen in reds.  Plants are 30" in height and have very sturdy stems that require no support (even in shadier locations).  Foliage is very deep green, relatively wide and a perfect back drop to the vibrantly colored flowers.  Stems not visible in the clump.  The red stigmas, filaments and yellow anthers are not visible on older, more well established plants.  Pollen fertility is good, but we have been unable to set viable seed on this cultivar to date.  Bloom time is week 3-4 with lutea hybrid woody peonies.  Blood Moon has been one of the most looked at herbaceous hybrid peonies in our display garden for several  years and we are excited to get it into other peony lover's gardens.  Limited availability.  One division per customer please.

Blushing Princess.
 Saunders/Reath/Rogers.  1991.  Herbaceous hybrid.  Blush pink, semi-double. It has stamens, pollen and seeds. Most reliable. Excellent substance, 32 inches in height. Fragrant, early to mid season bloom. Large medium green foliage. Sometimes the flower has so many petaloids in the center that it is close to double. This seedling came via the Reath Nursery. It was named by David Reath and registered by Caprice Farm Nursery, August 15, 1991. Seedling # 16350.  One of the better tetraploid breeding plants to date and easily fertile.
Bordeaux.  Saunders.  1943.  Herbaceous Hybrid.  (officinalis x lactiflora).  Large, claret colored petals.  Large center of yellow fringed stamens and petaloids.  An early Japanese form.  No fertility noted.  Very good and rarely  available.
Callisto.  Bremer. 2017.  Advanced generation herbaceous hybrid.  (Carnation Bouquet x (Vanilla Schnapps x Dreamtime)).  The medium-large sized flowers of Callisto have very wavy petals from the outside to the interior.  Color is baby ribbon pink aging to a blend of light pink and cream.  Stigmas and filaments are light pink and anthers carry nice yellow pollen.  None of the reproductive structures is usually visible due the doubleness of the flowers.  Some flowers do not contain stigmas, others have petals tightly wrapped around the stigmas.  Callisto is fertile both ways.  It's pod parent, Carnation Bouquet, has an interesting lineage and petal configuration, which Callisto carries on in it's genes.  Light fragrance.  Plants are slightly shorter than average at about 30".  Stems with flowers do lean, but are more than adequate to hold the flowers from laying on the ground.  Foliage is deep green and of typical hybrid structure.  A fast increaser for us and produces more flower stems than average.  Week 4-5 bloom time.  Named for the third largest moon of Jupiter, or, if you like, a nymph in Greek Mythology.  One division per customer please.

Cavatina.  Saunders.  1935.  Herbaceous hybrid. Deep bright rose single.  Petals have white flares on their underside, visible as flower opens.  Stamens are white tipped with light yellow anthers.  Carpels are green and are tipped with small pink stigmas.  Beautiful medium height plant.  (officinallis rosea plena x Germaine Bigot)  No fertility noted.

Dione.  Bremer.  2017.  Advanced generation herbaceous hybrid.  (Vanilla Schnapps x (Lemon Chiffon x The Mackinac Grand)).  Dione has very large, bright, deep pink, double flowers with sharply folded petals.  Flowers open slowly and have a high petal count.  Oddly, as the flower opens the flower form is rather box shaped and later becomes a globe. As the flowers age petals become lighter at the outer edges creating a frosted affect.  Stigmas/carpels are generally absent, but may be found sporadically.  Pollen is present between petals.  Stems are thick, but flower weight is great enough to bend them outward.  Some mechanical support may be needed for best display.  Foliage is deep green and wide.  Dione is named for the moon of Saturn discovered by Giovanni Cassini in 1684.  In Greek Mythology, Dione is a Titaness.  Flowering height is 34".   Seed fertility with work, pollen is easy.  Week 4-5 bloom time.  Limited supply upon this first offering.  One division per customer please.

Dreamtime.  Seidl/Bremer.  2013.  Herbaceous hybrid.  Originated and named by William Seidl of Manitowoc, Wisconsin.  Registered, propagated and distributed by Nate Bremer of Solaris Farms, Reedsville, Wisconsin.  The seed-parent is from Blushing Princess x Salmon Dream.  Two doses of Salmon Dream are in the pedigree and is why the word "dream" is part of the cultivar name.    Seeds and pollen.  Easily fertile and sets a tremendous number of seed.   Tall, close to 4', stalwart, pink,  semi-double. Dreamtime is a very fast and vigorous grower that needs no support.  An excellent garden subject as stems are strong and foliage remains in fine shape throughout the season.  Dreamtime's seedling number was #79H5-6 and much seed was distributed under this designation.  Easily Fertile.  (Pink Vanguard x Salmon Dream). 

Europa.  Bremer.  2016.  Herbaceous hybrid.  Seedling #NB46.  Tetraploid.  From seed purchased from William Seidl.  Named for the light colored moon of Jupiter.  Europa produces large cream-yellow double flowers with a soft inner glow of pink.  Petals are fluted, ruffled and notched multiple times each.  Petals often enclose the carpels and stigmas.  Carpels are light green and stigmas are red.  Yellow stamens are scarce and mixed among the petals.  32" stems lean, but do not meet the ground, even after rainfall.  Foliage is deep green and give an embossed look by the veins.    Healthy foliage throughout the summer.  A very consistent plant.  Was garden named 'Vintage Seidl'.  Fertile pollen and seed.   Pastelorama x (Archangel x Blushing Princess).  Just a few to be released this year, more to come.  One division per customer please.  Very Limited.
