I’ll keep you informed Sam. Rozella is one of my favorites as well when it comes to double pinks and I think it’s a variety that would satisfy most or all of a peony fancier’s wishes. But my (cutflower) clients prefer pale pink peonies over dark pink ones in general, so I do hope that I was able to isolate this mutation and that it will grow well. If it succeeds, it may take quite a few years before I have larger numbers obviously.
Growing peonies for cutflowers in Belgium. Also hybridizing them.
