A.P. Saunders hybrid tree peony pair
Regular price $ 178.00 Sale price $ 165.00
Two exceptional hybrid tree peonies produced from the breeding program of the great A.P. Saunders. Though both of these cultivars were introduced decades ago, they are as stunning today as when they first took the peony world by storm in the 1940s and 1950s. In addition to his work on herbaceous peonies, Saunders, a professor of chemistry at Hamilton College, produced some of the best yellow and very dark maroon red, near black, tree peonies.
In this pairing of two of Saunder's hybrid tree peonies, the clear golden blossoms of 'High Noon' contrast beautifully with the deep, reddish black satin petals of 'Black Panther.' These two varieties bloom at the same and make an excellent pairing.

Zone hardiness: Proven in USDA zones 4-9.
Plant sizes: Black Panther is 1 yr. size, High Noon 2 yr. size
