All peonies are shipped as dormant divisions/grafts in late September and early October, the appropriate time for planting.  We do not ship peonies in the spring.  Order early for best selection.  This catalog will close in early August 2017 to allow time for field selection, processing and digging.  New registrations are not available for international export.  New introductions normally sell out very quickly, but will be available in coming years if you missed out.

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.

Callisto. 
Bremer. 2017.  Advanced generation herbaceous hybrid.  (Carnation Bouquet x (Vanilla Schnapps x Dreamtime)).  The medium 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 adequate to hold the flowers from laying on the ground.  Foliage is deep green and of typical hybrid structure.  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.

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.  Flowering height is 34".   Seed fertility with work, pollen is easy.  Dione is named for the moon of Saturn discovered by Giovanni Cassini in 1684.  In Greek Mythology, Dione is a Titaness.  Week 4-5 bloom time.  Limited supply upon this first offering.  One division per customer please.

Just Peachy.  Seidl/Bremer.  2017.  Cream with peach flush toward the center of the flowers.  Single to semi-double.  Dark pink to red stigmas.  Light yellow filaments.  Guard petals and outer petals are wide and lightly ruffled.  Inner petals, when present, are smaller and curved.  Some petals are notched, more commonly in the inner petals.  Wide and rounded segments surround a ring of yellow stamens and 2 to 4 red stigmas.  Flower form is more double as plants age.  Medium height plant (32") with good stem strength and deep green, wide leaves.  Produce large round seeds. Fertile both ways.  (Pink Vangard x Salmon Dream). Bill Seidl garden named this plant 'Just Peachy' eight years ago, after it had been growing in his garden for some 30 years.  His interest in hybridizing herbaceous peonies took a break for an extended period. Just Peachy, along with numerous others were allowed to grow into very large clumps.  He realized that a renewed interest in peonies was building and discovered he had many hidden gems.  Around 2000 the internet became more accessible and Bill began to frequent forums and correspond with other enthusiasts.  He enjoyed the communications and this helped him to realize the treasures in his garden.   Just Peachy is a good example of Bill's renewed interest due to his ability to correspond with others through electronic media.  He truly enjoyed the many new friends that he made through the many emails and forums that the internet afforded.  Just Peachy was a plant that Bill believed had a large upside to hybridizing and would be a great garden plant for the peony enthusiast.  One division per customer please.

Red Rock Canyon.  Bremer.  2017.  Advanced generation herbaceous hybrid.  (Seidl #74H120-2 x (Lemon Chiffon x The Mackinac Grand)).  Red Rock Canyon has dark red semi-double red flowers with wavy petals that turn upward.  Petals are large, as is the flower.  Carpels are green and slightly hairy.  Stigmas are reddish-pink as are the filaments.  A large number of yellow, pollen producing stamens encircles the stigmas.  Bud covers are conspicuously streaked in red and green, visible before flower has opened and after petal fall, making the plant a long time attraction.  Stem strength is good, but the large flowers do lean a bit.  No mechanical support is needed.  Foliage is wide and and deep green throughout the growing season.  Plants reach 36" in height.   Bloom time is week 4.  No fragrance noted.  Fertile both ways.  Named for the 'Red Rock Canyon' park in Nevada, which has deep red rock streaked in green vegetation and rock.  Superior growth habits.  One division per customer please.

Sky Dance.
  Seidl/Bremer.  2017.  A large light pink double.  Strong stems reach for the sky and require no mechanical support, thus the name.  One bud per stem, sometimes one side bud.  Light pink stigmas, when present.  Yellow filaments and stamens.  Carpels may not be present or well formed on some flowers.  Fertile both ways.  Has been distributed under seedling number for the last 5 or 6 years.  This plant and another similarly numbered seedling (#79H119-4) may be the same cultivar according to a conversation with Bill this last summer.  Some years ago Bill placed his garden locator/log book on top of his car while visiting his growing lot.  He drove home (with book on top of the car) and the book was lost in transit.  This was an unfortunate event, since a great deal of the information about his cultivars and seedlings were lost. He recreated the book, but it was from memory and some observation. Seedling numbers and location was always a question mark for many of his older plants.   Bill had no labels on his plants in the gardens, thus identification, after the loss of the original locator/log book, was difficult.  In any event, the seedling number assigned to this registration is what is believed to be correct and is a consolidation of the two plants.  They appear to be the same in our garden, but further observation will need to be undertaken.  Gorgeous flowers with great plant habits.  (Blushing Princess x H-3)

Coral Nebula. 
Bremer.  2017.  Advanced generation lutea hybrid.  (Sedona x Seidl #141).  Large semi-double of cream heavily blushed in coral-pink.  Coral color is more prominent in center of the flower with outer petals more cream.  Petals notched, ruffled and crimped.  Dark maroon flares on inner most petals.  Flowers present around and on top of bush.  Coral-pink stigmas, red sheath and filaments.  Typically 5 carpels.  Foliage wide and dark green.  Plants are rounded and foliated to the ground, stems not easily visible.  Plants attain 3.5 feet in Wisconsin.  Fertile both ways.  Any winter stem kill is replaced by vigorous basal shoots.  Better than average amount of bloom for a lutea hybrid.  Outstanding.  We named this Coral Nebula as it conjures visions of a coral space scape. One per customer please.

Eternal Spring.  Seidl/Bremer.  Advanced generation lutea hybrid.  (Seidl #35 x Seidl #39)  Seidl #35=(Golden Era x Chinese Dragon);  Seidl #39=(Golden Era x Chinese Dragon).  Deep cerise-cherry single to semi-double with wavy broad petals. Small deeper colored flares. Rose-pink stigmas and sheath. Red stamens.  Buds look like tight rose buds as they open.   Flowers well displayed above and around the plant.

Grandmother's Symphony.  Seidl.  Advanced generation lutea hybrid.  The large flowers are a blend of rose and cream, in cooler weather the blooms are quite pink upon initial opening.  Bright pink stigmas, red sheath and filaments.  Single to semi-double blooms with notched petals.  Blooms sparingly, but is gorgeous. Produces varying stem lengths during bloom season.  New basal growth is long and often carries a single large bloom, while older wood can carry one terminal bloom with 2 side buds.   Large terminal stems are often winter killed, perhaps making this plant better for warmer zones than ours.  Foliage is wide, healthy and deep green.  Plants typically grow to 3 feet in Wisconsin, perhaps greater size in less demanding climates.  The subtle coloration is a blend reminiscent of decorative schemes found in a refined grandmother's home (soft, pleasing and relaxing).  Fertile both ways, seed is more difficult.  Extremely popular with garden visitors, both at Solaris Farms and in the Seidl garden.  (#11 x Autumn Harvest),  One per customer please.

Harvest Peach. Seidl.  Advanced generation lutea hybrid.   Somewhat variable in color from year to year. Single to Semi-double flowers are peach with magenta flares. Notched petals are slightly ruffled. An unusual color that sometimes approaches a light orange. Magenta sheath, red stamens and light pink stigmas.  Excellent dark green foliage with well dissected foliage that has very pointed ends.  Stems are not particularly hardy to temperatures below -15F, but re-grow vigorously from basal buds to bloom the same spring.  Pollen and seed fertility.  Seed is difficult (mostly soft seed). Bill Seidl believed that this plant might lead to more orange colored lutea hybrids in future generations. (Sedona x Autumn Harvest).  One per customer please.

Mimas is named for one of the moons of Saturn, or if you like, one of the giants in Greek Mythology.  One per customer please.

Peach Festival.  Seidl/Bremer.  Advanced generation lutea hybrid.  (Brassy Lady x #65).   #65=Daphnis #223 x Zephyrus.  Large cream and peach single to semi-double flowers carried on long stems.  Red stamens, cream stigmas and sheath.  Petals are notched at center.  Foliage is beautiful and deep blue-green.  Produces long stems that often freeze back during winter, but produces good ground growth that blooms yearly.  A second flush of flowers carried on very long stems, a couple weeks after the first blooms, is to be expected.  Plants easily reach 4 feet in Wisconsin and perhaps more if winter temperatures do not kill stems.  Foliage is deeply dissected with narrow lobes and more rounded ends than typical.  Foliage is somewhat glaucus.  Fertile both ways.  Distributed earlier under seedling number and 'Peach Festival'.  Excellent.  One per customer please.

Tethys.  Bremer. 2017.  Advanced generation lutea hybrid. (Brassy Lady x Sedona).  Tethys is a semi-double to double medium sized old rose colored flower.  Flowers can be brighter pink coloration in years with better precipitation and cooler temperatures.  The outer petals are notched and ruffled.  When flowers are double (produced on strong terminals) the interior petals are smaller, ruffled and turn in many directions.  The petals have many small reticulations of deeper coloration, creating an multicolor affect.  Medium pink stigmas, red filaments, maroon flares and red sheath.  Typically 5 carpels.  Leaves are broad, dark green. pointed (rough sawtooth) and petioles are red .  I would like stems to be a bit harder, but plants easily re-grow from basal shoots to bloom consistently year in and out.  The real draw, for me, is the very sturdy stems that carry flowers in an upward fashion-unusual for a double lutea hybrid.   Plants have excellent pollen and seed fertility is good on semi-double flowers.  Named for the spherical moon of Saturn that is pitted and cratered, or the Titaness of Greek Mythology.  One per customer please.
