These beauties are:

Blaze

Catherine Fontijn

Elsa Sass

Ethel Mars

Fiona

Jay Cee

Lake of Silver (ah, I love it, I adore it!)

Orlando Roberts

Reine Supreme

Rose Pearl - (it seems to be rare, I could not find it anywhere... But it is just breathtaking!)

Ruth Lokie

Salmon Glow (strange, I thought it supposed to be single)

Yes, thank you - they are LOVELY. I don't have any of those - so many peonies, so little yard. . . .

Wonderful pictures. In looking at Carsten's website. I think the one you list as Salmon Glow is Salmon Glory. Both were hybridized by the same person. I evy you the chance to see the gardens.

maifleur, It is strange with Salmon Glow/Glory - I thought that it was a mix up too... I took pictures of all plant tags and markers - and it sais Glow... Probably their mistake. It happens. :) Stunning flower, whatever it is...

I tried to find some of these cultivars (very understandable craving, after that spectacular show!) - and could not. BTW, all of them pretty good landscapers, too. Hold their shape beautifully, strong stems. Anyway - no luck finding them anywhere.

Have anyone seen Rose Pearl, Lake of Silver and Annisquam for sale anywhere? These are my favourites...

Annisquam you can find at www.songsparrow.com. They used to have Rose Pearl you might ask if they are planning to have it next year. Do a search with the name of the peony preceeded with the word peony you might be able to find a better price.
