    White Vanguard has, by benign accident, been distributed as two different seedlings as noted by Ruud. They possess two different parentage accordingly. #79H14-1 is the true White Vanguard, an Archangel seedling, that I acquired from Bill Seidl over a dozen years ago. It blooms very early, concurrent with the last blooms of Claire de Lune, has warm tints upon first opening and stands well without mechanical support. I was unsuccessful in trying to post a picture here, but have posted images of a newly opened bloom and the bush of #79H14-1 on my Facebook page Chotkowski Gardens for those who are interested.

    From Chotkowski Gardens on facebook: Flowering time: Very early, concurrent with the last opening blooms of Claire de Lune, a bit before Roselette, before Archangel, way before Red Charm.

    Growing peonies for cutflowers in Belgium. Also hybridizing them.

    Henry Chotkowski has mailed me the following images of White Vanguard, the ‘better’ one #79H14-1.

    First image shows the bush habit with free standing blooms and foliage to the ground; Photo 2 is a freshly opened bloom; and Photo 3 is a bloom a couple of days older.
