Paeonia 'Isadora'

type: [tree peony] – [lutea hybrid]


Daphnis (48)

ISADORA BC 1 (Isadora Duncan - The Dancer) (Nassos Daphnis, New York), Aug. 24, 1995. Seedling number D-414, parentage unknown. Hybrid, color yellow with red overcast, single. This is the most unusual flower. It starts with very dark flares from the base of each petal sending the red cast over the yellow. Then we see the red color appearing again at the edge of each petal. The flowing gesture of each petal suggests the veils of Isadora Duncan, when she was dancing. Good substance, has stamens, no pollen or seeds, fragrant, reliable, one bud per stem. Good stem strength, 4-6 feet in height, light green foliage, vigorous. Amount of bloom varies (10-20). Colored slide. Bulletin #296.
