Seedling number #HH5-18. Parentage: ‘Carnation Bouquet’ x Unknown. First bloomed 2012, first propagated 2014. Early-midseason to midseason blooming SINGLE goblet-shaped flowers open a blush-coral color, and quickly fade to cream-white. Flowers are 12.7cm (5”) in diameter, upward facing, and average four per stem. Established plants will produce up to three sidebuds, extending the flowering season. Petals are generally rounded, held cupped, and may be lightly notched. Guards are on average 5cm (2”) in width. No fragrance noted. Flowers possess on average two to three pale-green carpels covered in short, white hairs. Light coral-pink stigmas are of normal anatomy, and add delicate simplicity to the flower. Fertile both ways, and much used in the originator’s breeding program in an effort to take advantage of its good plant habits. Stamens are between 1.25-2cm (0.5-0.75”) in length; filaments are cream-colored. Disc is well-developed, and cream-white in color. Fertile both ways. Plants reach 81cm (32”) at maturity, and carry rounded, medium-green foliage. Foliage at the time of emergence is light red. Stems carry flowers completely upright, and no mechanical support is necessary. Plants are vigorous and disease resistant. Pronounced yoo • tur • pee, Euterpe was the titan goddess of memory and lyric poetry, as well as the sister of Calliope in Greek mythology. This cultivar is also a sibling to peony ‘Calliope’, and carries similar floral and overall plant characteristics.
