Paeonia 'Tessera'

type: [tree peony] – [lutea hybrid]


Daphnis (48)

TESSERA - Nassos Daphnis (D-9), pedigree unknown. The fourth plant crossed, hence the name. A single blossom with a few big, pale peach petals.

Walter Good:

Glowing, unusual and intriguing orange-peach tones creates one of the most unique tree peonies available. The fourth cross Daphnis made, hence the name.

Tessera. Daphnis. 1985. F1 lutea hybrid. Peach and cream flower that is cupped or ball shaped for a day or two as it opens. Dark flares at center. Nicely ruffled petals. Blooms on and off all summer for us. Red stems and unique finely cut foliage. Plants produce long stems throughout the summer months, but stem hardiness is poor in Wisconsin. Reliably blooms once established. A collectors plant that is rarely available. Unknown fertility, but seed has been reported by other hybridizers.
