Paeonia 'Fuchsia Ruffles'

type: [tree peony] – [lutea hybrid]

FUCHSIA RUFFLES (Bill Seidl), Manitowoc, Wisconsin, July 9, 1996. Seedling #SH-173. Parentage Ann Marie x Shin-tenchi . Hybrid tree peony, first bloomed 1993. Ruffled petals are fuchsia or vivid reddish purple, as is the sheath, darkening to burgundy flares and filaments; carpel tips are deep pink. Sparce vestigal stamens are naked, i.e. without pollen. No seeds as yet - 6-7" diameter flowers are double, 30-plus petals and carried well. Reliable, one to three buds per stem, 34 inches in height, 40 inches wide, blooms midseason. Vigorous, had enormous root system when transplanted from nursery bed in 1993. 75% moutan blood bestows greater hardiness than most other hybrid tree peonies. Fragrant.

Theresa Griesbach:

Fuchsia Ruffles. Seidl. 1996. Advanced generation lutea hybrid. Lovely clear fuchsia many petaled semi-double to double flower. Pink stigmas, red sheath and stamens. Anthers are waxy and light yellow. Impeccable form and carriage. Plants tend to be rather slow growing, but is one of the most beautifully colored and formed of all the new American tree peony hybrids in our estimation. Not a tall plant here in Wisconsin, but stem hardiness is good. FR does produce seed, but has no pollen. Beautiful foliage. Rarely available and always in high demand. (Anna Marie x Shintenchi).
