JANICE (Saunders, 1939) - Single - Pink - Early - Hybrid. Tall. Erect, with good-sized salmon pink single flowers. Albiflora x lobata. Lists in Bulletins 91 and 129. Saunders 1955 catalog.

Janice (1939) First to bloom of the whole race and vigorous. [Albiflora x lobata - the great race of „lobata hybrids“ This group contains many beautiful pink and red tones so long desired in the Chinese peonies; salmon, coral, rose and deep cherry pinks, to clear bright crimsons, with no hint of purple and never a bad color in all the hundreds that have bloomed. I think this is the most brilliant and e effective strain of herbaceous hybrids yet produced. . Their season is generally M. They set hardly any seed, but their F2's may be interesting. About a dozen reds, and almost thirty pinks have been introduced, many of them so similar to one another that I have now tried to sort them roughly into color groups. The pinks especially, fade off as the flower ages , into pale peach shades, so that a mature plant will have flowers of many differing tones, but all harmonious [..] are single except when otherwise noted. ] The Pinks: First, three salmon pinks, which are the ear[..] bloom of the race.

Janice (Saunders 1939) Early midseason. Single; good sized salmon pink, cupped flowers. Taller than most of the Lobata of Perry Hybrids. Presentation in the border may benefit by support when in flower. Limited Supply. Item 0121.
