Paeonia 'Greta Kessenich'

type: [herbaceous peony] – [species cultivar] – [lactiflora]

GRETA KESSENICH (R. W. Tischler), Tischler Peony Garden, Faribault, Minnesota, 1998. Seedling #90. Anemone type, with staminodes so full in the center that it is almost a double. The flower is a striking beauty with the deep center a very dark-rose - almost red. This color radiates up each staminode, from the dark to the pale with the blend reaching the top of the tips, which are white. It truly is a burst of the rainbow in the blending of the rays. The guard petals are a deep pink; the plant is covered with bloom, just above the top of the foliage. Photo enclosed - Bulletin cover #308.
