    Rozella, from my greenhouse (it’s a late blooming cultivar in fact). How to say this without overstating it? It’s a perfect plant I think 😀. Very sturdy straight stems, an immensely large flower. Floriferous. Clean closed bud. Dark green healthy foliage. It’s by far my favourite dark pink and I cannot recommend it highly enough. According to David Reath, its hybridizer, this is a hybrid, to me it looks lactiflora, but who cares?

    • How’s your light pink mutation growing, Koen? That would be most promising also. We need more statue peonies like Rozella.

      • Last fall I dug and divided my two plants of it. The one which wasn’t pure yet was kept separately and again I’ve tried to get rid of the dark pink part. The small divisions remaing didn’t flower this year. The ‘pure’ one was divided and replanted and flowered. There was one flower which had one remaining dark pink petal, the rest of the flowers and petals were pale pink. Next year will be their second season, I’ll see how much remains of the dark pink and in Fall I can then probably remove the very last bit of the dark pink and propagate it as a normal cultivar. I think it’s promising indeed as Rozella is such a splendid plant.
