Quantity

Herbaceous hybrid. Parentage: 'Mons. Jules Elie' x P. mlokosewitschii, has useable fertility.

It is of special interest for its genetic ancestry and its potential as a parent of wanted characteristics. Paeonia mlokosewitschii is the yellow flowered peony of the Caucasus and nearby mountain ranges of the Middle East. Bred back to another P. lactiflora, double flower seed parent 'Claire de Lune' is parent of at least one peony cultivar presently in commerce. 'Summer Glow'. Like many first-generation interspecies hybrids, the percent fertility is not high, but the potential for wanted progeny appears to be excellent.

Backcross to lactiflora, or pollinate with tetraploid.
