Victoire de la Marne

This beautiful heirloom variety is typified by a smaller bud that opens into a full-sized semi-double with burgundy petals and contrasting yellow stamens. The foliage is also edged with purple piping to give a very striking total package.

Kansas

Considered one of the best double-red varieties in the industry, Kansas blooms are suffuse with large watermelon red petals on sturdy stems. A beautiful red for any occasion.


Trial Varieties

Here at Boreal Peonies, we take research seriously (comes with the two PhD’s and one MS). One of our projects is determining which varieties grow best in an Arctic environment. Besides the -40 degree winters and 24 hour daylight in the summer, we have cool, silt loam soils that are nutrient poor and exhibit low microbe activity. Therefore, we are testing over 20 different varieties covering the spectrum of flower morphology, from Itoh’s to bombs, and doubles to semi-doubles.
