Paeonia 'Manchurian Promise'

type: [tree peony] – [lutea hybrid]



(Bremer 2016)

Manchurian Promise. Bremer. 2016. Advanced generation lutea hybrid. Large semi-double coral-salmon-peach blend with dark maroon flares. Petals are highly ruffled, notched, crimped and those at the center face up. Color is reminiscent of our Manchurian apricot tree in bloom. Sheath is light pink as are the stigmas. Stamens are maroon tipped with waxy yellow anthers. Flower color can be variable from year to year presumably due to temperatures, but always attractive. Flower substance is quite heavy and are supported by sturdy stems. Carriage is outward. Foliage is large and tinted in red during the early part of the growing season. Blooms with other lutea hybrids. Plant height is 4' and may be greater in areas that have higher winter temperatures. Stem hardiness has been good thus far, with little winter damage. Manchurian Promise is one of the most popular 'woodies' during spring viewing at Solaris Farms. Seed fertility and pollen. (Sedona x Rosalind Elsie Franklin).
