Early Glow (Hollingsworth 1992) Early-Midseason. Single; light yellow, passing to ivory, crimson highlights at center, excellent substance. Occasional side buds extend flowering and breeding options. Large leaflets are avocado green, stems spreading, and wide but strong bush remains green to latest autumn; very vigorous, excellent in the landscape, one of the best for landscape design. (‘Roselette’s Grandchild’ x ‘Cream Delight’) fertile, pollen and seeds, presumed tetraploid

(-2) A fairly new introduction of the breeder Don Hollingsworth. Excellent perennial for the garden with beautiful foliage all season long. Simple flower form with slightly undulated petals of a pale yellow and a golden center with red accents coming from the carpels. Beginning of mid-season bloomer. Plant of 85 cm. Fertile hybrid with an impressive genetic (Roselette’s Grandchild x Cream Delight) deserving to be well used in breeding.

(-2) Une pivoine récemment introduite sur le marché par l’hybrideur Don Hollingsworth. Elle excelle comme plante de jardin par sa tenue et son beau feuillage qui conserve sa tenue et sa couleur toute la saison. La fleur est simple, avec des pétales légèrement ondulés d’un jaune très pâle, plutôt crème et un cœur d’étamines dorées d’où ressort des accents d’un rouge vif provenant des carpelles. Floraison en début de mi-saison. Plant de 85 cm. Hybride fertile dont le bagage héréditaire (Roselette’s Grandchild x Cream Delight) mérite de l’utiliser dans des programmes d’hybridation.
