Fertile Yellow Breeder Peony Lemon ChiffonJanuary 4, 2017 Happy New Year! Arctic cold has settled in for a few days. I've finished some office work and now I can plant some of the peony seeds that were collected this past fall. Some of the seeds were received from other peony breeders that I had a chance to meet with a few weeks ago and include some very exciting parents. For those interested in growing peonies from seed I recommend you join the American Peony Society to participate in their seed exchange that includes seeds from top breeders in the US of some plants that sell for hundreds of dollars.  

 

Seedlings2011wmk.jpgWe just finished planting the peony seeds for our 2037 crop. Yes 2037 - it takes 20 - 30 years to grow, flower and select a new peony and grow enough to offer it for sale for the first time. Compared to daylilies which can be grown and harvested in as little as 18 months and some of which sell for higher prices than peonies.
