• (Origin unknown) The rich carmine pink blooms are among the largest of the Japanese type peonies; the enormous yellow center is usually packed with pink and cream petaloids, which give the flower the look of a full double.
  • (Roy Klehm 1973) In our opinion, the most spectacular of the Cheddar series; a large Imperial with an explosion of intensely yellow petaloids that often balloon into huge double bombs of white and butter yellow; plant height about 32 inches; midseason bloomer that’s very fragrant; stake it.
    Available in pots at the nursery.    
  • (White/Wild 1954) Large pale yellow to ivory single filled with a mass of buttery yellow stamens; a bright flower, crinkled and rounded at the petal edges; height to  28 inches;  the carpels have showy pink tips; a hybrid from mlokosewitschii.
    Available in pots at the nursery.
  • (Kelsey 1936) Stunning Japanese light pink and bright yellow; large guard petals surround the neon yellow staminodium; usually the pink petaloids will feather out so fully, the blooms will look fully double, while another bloom on the same stem will simply show the yellow center. Strong grower and reliable bloomer with pleasant fragrance; plant height to about 36”; limited; rarely available.
  • Moonrise

    (Saunders 1949) Large pale yellow to ivory petals surround a cluster of golden stamens and olive carpels tipped ivory; flower width about 10 inches; deep green, wide foliage; height can vary, some plants here have reached about 42 inches.
    (Roy Pehrson's Best Yellow 1982)  Large soft, but true yellow single flower with good, solid substance; a medium height plant with strong stems and dark green foliage; usually some side buds; vigorous grower.
    Available in pots at the nursery.
  • (Seidl/Simmons 2015) This yellow herbaceous hybrid from New Zealand is a coming attraction and may well become the queen of yellows as it is populates gardens in the US; the flower is 6.5 inches in diameter with many other attributes: stands well against wind; no staking even in the rain; productive bloomer for cut flowers and healthy growth habits; height 32 inches; just a few.
  • (Hollingsworth 1984) Pink and cream yellow Japanese anemone to loose double form; warm pink guard petals surround a center of large, cream yellow petaloids; on mature plants a great deal of spectacular feathering can occur in the center with many pink petals springing out; sidebuds extend flowering; about 36" tall.
  • (Tolomeo 2010) YeDo is for Yellow Double and it is the most double of two famous yellow intersectionals introduced by Tolomeo; the other is Sonoma Halo, also in our garden; very full flowers six inches or more in size; height about 30 inches tall; a phenomenal flower that stands upright; prolific bloomer.
    Available in pots at the nursery.
  • (Gilbert H. Wild & Son 1968) White and yellow anemone to bomb form; 5-6" flowers with narrower petals filling the center, mixed with tawny petalodes; many strong stems to 32 inches; sets seeds.
  • (Itoh-Smirinow 1974) Brilliant yellow semi-double to full double with occasional red flaring at the base of the petals; thick, full petaled blooms up to 8 inches on a plant about 24 inches; excellent for cutting, but on the plant blooms tend to hang, so you might have to part foliage to see them in their entirety.
    Available in pots at the nursery.
  • (Anderson 1999) Semi-double to double very soft creamy yellow flowers have a carnation shape and are on long stems carried well above the foliage; apricot hues emanate from the center;  light fragrance; forms a mound 28 inches tall.
  • (Hollingsworth 1984) (Intersectional) A Court of Honor winner several times at the national peony show; bright butter yellow single flowers that have muted scarlet red flares at the tips; a vigorous, rapidly spreading bush with superb foliage that stays almost impeccable throughout the spring and summer.  
  • (Dessert 1913) French horticulturists at that time were very excited by Dessert's introduction of the first double peony to show some yellow; buds are pale pink, then as they open, assert a rich bright yellow cast before fading to creamy white; medium height.
    Available in pots at the nursery.  
  • (Reath 1981) The beauty and vigor of this, the first yellow herbaceous peony of size, casts a spell of delight on our garden visitors; pollen fertile and lots of seeds every year; excellent as a cut flower.  
  • (Caucasian Mountains) We are able to offer a limited number of divisions from mature plants; these are not seedlings, rather plants we continue to propagate from the Goldsmith collection; sulfur yellow blooms, pink tipped carpels, distinctive foliage and those famous seed pods.
  • (Seidel 1989) Pastel creamy-pink double with stamens interspersed; a landmark peony that is, among the hybridizers, changing the course of history for peonies, as many progeny are already introduced or in the works; fertile both ways;  30 inches plant height with semi-glossy foliage.
  • (Hollingsworth 1992) (Intersectional) Medium-size to large flowers of clear yellow with a large dark purple red flares at the base; vigorous plant about 26" to 30" tall forms a substantial bush with attractive light green foliage; dependable bloomer.
  • Quitzin

    (Prof. Herald Fawkner, Falköping, Sweden 2001) Massive bomb-style double with an unusual combination of colors--vivid lime green buds open with cream-buff guards surrounding a greenish ball center which turns to yellow featuring several shades of yellow intermingled with apricot peach; needs several years to show true colors and awesome size; tetraploid; some pollen and seeds; tall, strong stems but the heavy flowers may need support; flower shown is first year in our garden.
  • (Tolomeo 2006) Bright yellow fully double flower brings the notion of a yellow peony to a new higher standard; deep inside, but hidden by all the petals, are pink flares and light green carpels topped with pink stigmas; petal edges fade to white as the bloom matures; height to 28 inches; excellent.
  • (Pehrson/Sidel 1989) (Intersectional) Soft, light greenish yellow intersectional hybrid; robust, upright stems hold 8 inch flowers above the foliage; excellent performer with long lasting blooms; choice.
