Nate Bremer
Herbaceous Hybrid

Seedling number #NGMM. Parentage: (‘Nosegay’ x P. mlokosewitschii) x ‘P. officinalis var. villosa ‘Sol’’. First bloomed 2014, first propagated 2019. Early blooming SINGLE flowers are reddish-pink, 9.5cm (3.75”) in diameter, outward facing, and average one per stem. Outer guard petals are rounded and lightly notched. Petals of the inner row are smaller, and slightly spatulate. Petals fade slightly, are lighter at bases, and become increasingly ruffled with age. Average width of guard petals is 4.5cm (1.75”). No fragrance noted. Flowers possess on average four violet-colored carpels covered in a dense layer of wooly, light-pink hairs. Reddish-violet stigmas are of normal anatomy. Toothy disk is also violet in color. Stamens are between 1.25-2cm (0.5-0.75”) in length. Violet filaments are white at termination. Fertile both ways. Plants reach 45-50cm (18-20”) at maturity, and carry elongated leaflets of deep blue-green coloration that act as a perfect foil for blooms. Foliage is near to the ground, and makes a nicely mounded, low-growing rock garden subject. Foliage at the time of emergence is light red. Roots are highly adventitious, thus, new plants may be propagated from blind roots. Requires well-drained soil, though is otherwise vigorous and not difficult to grow. Named for its beautiful floral presentation, which never seems to last long enough (though in this case is average for early-blooming peonies).
