NOVA, Saunders (USA), 1950, Hybride – Paeonia mlokosewitschii x P. macrophylla, Enkele lichtgele bloemen met hier en daar een doorschijnende groenige tint. Geen zijknoppen. Haar gewas is typisch voor een macrophylla-hybride; breed donkergroen en glanzend blad en een compacte niet al te hoge groei. Zeer groeikrachtig. ‘Nova’ is uitermate geschikt als tuinplant. De vroegst bloeiende pioen uit ons assortiment en een echte topper.

NOVA, Saunders (USA), 1950, Hybrid – Paeonia mlokosewitschii x P. macrophylla, Single, clear pale yellow flowers with occasional green shading. No sidebuds. Typical macrophylla-hybrid planthabit; broad dark green and shiny leaflets on a fairly low plant. Mlokosewitschii-parentage is most noticed by the fine-haired yellowish leaflets, next to the flowercolor of course. Very vigorous. The earliest flowering peony from our collection. 'Nova' is particularly recommendable as a garden peony, she is a No.1 landscaper.
