'Coral Charm' (Wissing, U.S.A., 1964) P. lactiflora x P. peregrina 'Otto Fröbel' Bloemen koraalroze met oranje ondertoon, komvormig, halfgevuld, meeldraden goudgeel; hoogte 90 cm; bloemstengels stevig; vertakking matig tot slecht. 'Coral Charm' is vorstgevoelig en daardoor is de plant ook gevoelig voor Botrytis. Door de unieke bloemkleur is deze pioen heel bijzonder in het sortiment. Ondanks de negatieve factoren werd deze cultivar met één ster gewaardeerd.

CORAL CHARM (E)(Wissing) Large, brilliant coral semi-double; the tight hot coral pink buds open to a rich coral peach then fade to softer shades of coral all the way to tangerine yellow; a mature plant will have the spectacular effect of showing all the shades at once; tall with strong stems and oh, so easy to grow

Wissing (USA), 1964
Hybrid– Paeonia lactiflora x P. peregrina ‘Otto Froebel’
Semi-double huge bowl-shaped flowers of a coral color with dark yellow stamens and bright pink tipped carpels. A very trendy peony because of her distinctive flower color and the change of this when maturing. Flowers open to a rich coral-peach and then age to softer shades of coral all the way to a creamy yellow. Mature well grown plants display all this diverse beauty in one spot! Very little sidebuds, very vigorous, tall growing. Awarded with the APS Gold Medal in 1986.

Wissing (USA), 1964
Hybride – Paeonia lactiflora x P. peregrina ‘Otto Froebel’
Zeer grote koraalkleurige semi-dubbele bloemen met donkergele meeldraden en felroze stempels. Een erg trendy pioen door haar aparte oranje-achtige kleur en kameleonbloei (bij aanvang roze met witte vlammen in de basis, vervolgens verbloeiend naar oranje, crème en uiteindelijk wit). Volwassen planten tonen al deze kleurenpracht in één! Praktisch geen zijknoppen. Zeer groeikrachtig en forse lengte. Bekroond met de APS Gold Medal in 1986.

Im Laufe der Blütezeit bleicht die Farbe immer mehr aus, ist zum Schluß faßt creme.
