      Thank you for a nice article! Is this variety fertile?

      Hello Hannah,

      Unfortunately it is not. I’ve tried several times but could never find usable pollen nor carpels. Cutting it down to promote growth of the secondary smaller buds didn’t help either, I got smaller flowers but they were still double.

      I’d very much like a seedling of it because it’s very good, but I’m afraid it’s a dead end when it comes to hybridizing.

      All the best,

        That is a shame, but thanx for the answer though!

      I planted Amalia Olson in the fall of 2016, was astonished with its perfect form and bright white color next summer. (I live in Alaska.) In summer 2018 I left also one bud to save some energy for development and the flower was not as perfect as the year before.  This summer I was surprised with the flowers – they were not pure white. I am sure the climate and other conditions affect the blooms, last summer was cool and probably the peony did not store enough energy for flowers. I am waiting for the next year, the bush is growing and I hope it will develop soon to produce perfect flowers again!
