Paeonia 'Center Stage'Paeonia 'Center Stage'
Paeonia 'Center Stage'
(D.L.Reath 2000) A stunning P.rockii/P.lutea hybrid tree peony which was registered just 22 years ago. This remarkable hybrid has foliage which is much more finely cut than most other P.lutea hybrids, and is a darker green, with the leaves being maintained until first frosts.  The flowers are outstanding. Large single to semi double blooms which open cream then quickly fade to pure white. They have a very eye-catching symmetrical centre, with long maroon flares exquisitely marked on the petals, detail so fine it looks as if they were applied with a paintbrush. The flowers even have a light sweet fragrance. This wonderful peony will grow strongly forming a dense multistemmed shrub approximately 120cm high by the same wide, although regular pruning can keep it smaller if required. Much easier to grow, and definitely more robust than the famous P. rockii. Very limited stock.    
Paeonia 'Chinese Dragon'Paeonia 'Chinese Dragon'
Paeonia 'Chinese Dragon'
(Saunders 1948). One for the collector. This is one of the first Lutea hybrids, and it has always been one of our personal favourites due to its hypnotic coloration. The single blooms are an iridescent shade of purple-crimson, which in the morning light can cause the flowers to exhibit a blue hue. Although perhaps not the most free blooming cultivar until mature, it remains one of the most captivating and hard to find of all tree peonies. Eventual height around 100-120cm.

Paeonia 'Renown'Paeonia 'Renown'
Paeonia 'Renown'
(Saunders 1949). One of the most sought after cultivars and one that we have not been able to offer for sale for several years. Medium size flowers of bright copper rose, a delicacy of colour which is rarely found. Makes a bushy shrub with quite finely dissected foliage which is tinged red at the edges. A fine plant.
