Visitors to our garden often remark on the fine collection of pastel cream, yellow, peach and salmon herbaceous peonies we have. These are early blooming hybrids, flowering for us in late-May with the tree peonies. The story behind these hybrids is an interesting one. In the early 1990s we received a shipment to hybrid herbaceous peonies from the breeder Chris Lanning. Lanning, in turn, had acquired the progenitors of these plants from the Saunders nursery. Thier genetic background is complex, and contain both P. obovata subsp. willmottiae, P. dauricasubsp. macrophylla, as well as P. lactiflora. Have a look at some of our favorite selections from this hybrid group here.

Grow habit tends to be vigorous to 2.5' tall by 3' wide. Blossoms are almost always single, though we rarely get a semi-double and full double. Colors will vary from white, cream, yellow, pink, and salmon peach. Given good care, herbaceous peony seedlings will begin to bloom in their 3rd or 4th year.

This packet consists of 20 viable seeds. Fresh seeds will be harvested in mid-August 2016.

Every year we see new seedlings bloom. See some of our favorite Peony Heaven hybrid herbaceous peony seedlings here
