Lutea Hybrid

Parentage: ‘Golden Experience’ x ‘Rosalind Elsie Franklin’. First bloomed 2011, first propagated 2015. Midseason blooming SINGLE to SEMI-DOUBLE flowers are primarily light pink (RHS54C), which fades to a light red-purple (73B). Red-purple flares (74A) with bleeding edges emanate from the flower center, and span approximately 70% of total petal length. These flares bleed to a fine veining of the same color across the remaining petals surface. An unusual combination of colors for lutea hybrid peonies. Flowers are 14cm (5.5″) in diameter, upward facing, and average one per stem, with an occasional side bud. Guard petals are ruffled, rounded, notched, and are typically 7cm (2.75″) in diameter. No fragrance noted. Flowers possess an average of three sparsely hairy, pale-green carpels with pink stigmas of normal anatomy; stigmas exhibit a paler pink edge. Stamens are 2cm (0.75″) in length; filaments are dark-purple in color, fading lighter toward the tips. Fertile both ways. Sheath is complete, and purple in color. Plants reach about 110cm (43″) at maturity, and carry broadly pointed, green foliage. Growth habit is spreading.
