Theresa Griesbach:

Lavender Hill. Seidl. 1996. American rockii-suffruticosa lineage hybrid. (Rock's Variety x Kamata-fuji). Many petaled semi-double lavender petals and stamens, cream-lavender sheath, pink stigmas, dark purple flares. Petals are creped and ruffled. Beautiful rounded and deeply cut leaves gracefully cover the medium sized shrub. Plants are heavy bloomers and flower carriage is very good. Very hardy and always consistent. To 4 feet and 5 feet wide after 10 years. A rockii hybrid that has it all-superior. Fertile both ways. One of the most popular woody peonies we carry and worthy of any garden. Recommended for cold winter climates.
