I’ve always enjoyed peony flowers, and came to love them even more when I learned that deer do not eat them! Almost all herbaceous peonies do well in the north, but not so in the south. Although I'm not in the deep south, my first goal in breeding peonies was to find which ones perform well in my area of central NC, then use those as my parent plants. Twenty years later, I’m seeing some results. I enjoy the single flowers, and the Japanese and bomb types. I like peonies that have multiple buds per stem, especially when they open at the same time – it’s like a bouquet on a stem!
Presently, I do not have any for sale, but here are a few photos of some selected seedlings that I’m evaluating.
