akulina those are breathtaking. Thank you for posting those big beautiful pictures for us.

RE: Amazing Peonies at Royal Botanical gardens

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


RE: Amazing Peonies at Royal Botanical gardens

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.

RE: Amazing Peonies at Royal Botanical 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...

RE: Amazing Peonies at Royal Botanical gardens

Annisquam you can find at 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.
