(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.  
  • (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.
  • Sunny Boy

    (Chris Laning 1985) Full double medium yellow with purple red flares at the petal base; a hybridizer’s peony because it sets seeds and has effective pollen; slow growing.
  • (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.
    Available in pots at the nursery.
  • (Anderson 1999) (Intersectional) One of the loveliest of the recent crosses between peonies and tree peonies, also known erroneously as Itohs;  4 to 6 inch blooms are a unique color blend of peach/salmon that changes to yellow/cream, while the guard petals display shades of pink; 22 to 24 inches in height; excellent vigor.  
  • (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.
    Available in pots at the nursery.
  • (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.
  • (Orville Fay 1959) Huge pale yellow single to semi-double on tall stems; after a show of pale sulfur yellow, the flower fades to ivory; the 32 inch stems usually don’t need staking; takes 3-4 years for the plant to look its best, though the foliage leaves much to be desired, so best to grow it in the back of the border; nice in a bouquet with some of the corals.
  • 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.
  • (Anderson 1986) (Intersectional) A strong plant of symmetrical form supporting large semi-double lemon yellow flowers with a lemon fragrance. Blooms to 9 inches or more on established plants.
    Available in pots at the nursery.
