Odd Lot, herbaceous peony
Notable characteristics: White anemone form blossoms with hints of cream boast a fluff of finely cut petals (staminodes) in the center of the flower. Lower growing cultivar ideal for smaller gardens.
'Odd Lot' is a seldom seen cultivar registered by the prolific hybridizer William Kreckler of Sommerville, Ohio. Beginning in the 1940s, Kreckler collected what he judged to be the "800 best peonies varieties one [could] obtain." The diverse genetics of his collection provided a fertile basis for the 380 new cultivars which Kreckler registered with the American Peony Society over his lifetime. This is one of his fine selections.
