      Tranquil Dove is a hybrid peony that derives from a somewhat shady cross. It’s an open pollinated seedling from Halcyon, a strain of very alike plants

      I had the chance to see a couple of plants of this variety in full bloom a few days ago, and I’ll have to say, I can’t remember seeing a more charming peony plant. The flowers were smallish, but that didn’t make much difference, given how strikingly attractive it was, with the flowers sitting altogether at the same height on the top of the plant. I’m not sure how long the flowers on the plant will stay looking good, maybe just a few days ? But seeing this unusually variety made a real impression on me, when it was fresh and looking good.

      The flowers tend to hold quite well. Five days later now and the flowers still look good. Here’s a close-up of a flower that was open back then. It has paled of course but there’s still some pink blush on the sides and I think it’s still very attractive.

      That was good to know
      As i love Picotee`but it does not be good in my garden, even giving it the best place to grow.. it does not trive – i have woodsy soil.. this could be the reason – But i have decided to move it.. this fall

      I will try to obtain Transquil Dove instead – thanks
