Paeonia 'Green Lotus' (Green Lotus Peony)

SunZone: 4-8 28" tall Origin: Hybrid

This superb new Krekler-Klehm hybrid has been one of the real stars in our heat tolerance trials. Each vigorous clump produces dozens of flower spikes once established. The May-borne (in NC) cactus-dahlia type flowers are composed of frilly white petals suffused with chartreuse at the base of the petals and pink toward the tips. This is destined to be a star in the South where peonies are often just a pipe dream.

Missouri Botanical Garden 2005:

‘Green Lotus’ is an herbaceous (soft-stemmed) peony. It is a shrubby perennial that, each year, will typically grow to 26-28” tall by mid-spring, bloom, display attractive foliage throughout the summer and early fall, and then die to the ground after frost. Single blooms, sometimes described as being cactus/dahlia type, feature pale lime green petals with soft pink overtones on the petal extremities and contrasting bright yellow center stamens. Flowers appear in mid-season (usually late May in St. Louis) and are mildly fragrant. Deep green foliage is divided into oval to lance-shaped segments. Excellent cut flower. Krekler- R. G. Klehm, 1995

GREEN LOTUS (Blooms early season) A new, excitingly different Peony bloom. A fleeting glance might have you thinking “Cactus Dahlia”, but you’d be wrong! Each glowing center is boldly decorated with krinkly pink petals plus random flashes of lime-green to add to the excitement. Ht. 70cm. (28").

(0) Another Cactus Dalhia style baby ! Simple flower form with irregurlay denticulated petals typical of this kind of peony. Its color is a wonderful mix mainly white with accents of green and soft rose. Plus, flowers are supported by strong stems and a beautiful foliage. Sweety! Plant of 85 cm. Late bloomer. Very slightly fragrant. New and different!

(0) Fleur simple aux pétales dentelés et irréguliers de forme, caractéristiques de ce type de pivoines. Superbe mélange de couleur des pétales formés principalement de blanc et sur lesquels apparaîssent des accents de vert lime et de rose tendre. Le tout porté par des tiges fermes sur un feuillage d’un beau vert. Adorable ! Plant de 85 cm. Floraison hâtive. Léger parfum des fleurs. Très nouvelle.
