Beresowskyi x Emodi. This and the Veitchi x Emodi strains are so closely alike that I prefer to offer them under the above names (Early Windflower, Late Windflower). The early strain blooms at the very beginning of the peony season; the other about a week later. These plants are graceful and unusual. The flowers, which are only moderate in size, resemble beautiful white anemones. They are slightly nodding and are borne on rather tall stems. The foliage is fern-like and very handsome. Sold as a strain only, the plants in each group being all closely alike.
