Paeonia 'Fire Down Below'

type: [tree peony] – [lutea hybrid]



Fire Down Below. Bremer. 2019. Advanced generation lutea hybrid. Seedling number: #NB-SH95. Parentage is KC Red x NB37. NB37= (Autumn Harvest x G'Day Mate). Named for brilliant red blended flowers which are reminiscent of molten rock. Flowers are semi-double red-rose-orange blend with ruffled notched petals. Flower color is difficult to describe, but is brilliant and will not be confused with other cultivars. As petals expand many small ruffles appear along the edges. Red stigmas, filaments and sheath. 1 to 2 buds per stem (we have seen 3 on occasion). Bloom stems are long and carry buds outward. Foliage is much more finely cut than most advanced generation lutea hybrids, highly lobed and deep blue green. Plants produce excellent numbers of ground shoots. Stem hardiness from cold winters is average, but easily regrow and bloom the year after loss. Exciting breeding potential due to flower color and foliage habit. Shorter plants for us to approximately 34 inches in Wisconsin. Fertile both ways. As further generations of lutea hybrids are produced, greater fertility is being seen and Fire Down Below is an example of such plants. Limited. One per customer as supply lasts.
