Paeonia 'Dear Emma'

type: [herbaceous peony] – [herbaceous hybrid]

DEAR EMMA (G. D. Whitsett, Decatur, Illinois), Oct. 31, 1998. Parentage: from mixed tet. seed, 1983 seed exchange. Bloom/plant selected 1988. Medium pink gradually fading to white chalice of extra heavy substance. Blooms just above the clean dark green foliage. Heavy petals remain firm until maturity of plant. This hybrid remains green all season - large heavy seed pods. Excels in vigor, beauty and durability. As dependable as my great aunt for whom this plant is named who died in 1996 and was always superbly sturdy and substantial. Tetraploid.
