(Bockstoce,1955) 

sold out 

COLOR: Pink

FORM: Double

HEIGHT: 90cm (28in)

FRAGRANCE: Light

BLOOM SEASON: Early

 Bess Bockstoce has been confused with "Rose Heart" for many years, but things are now straightening out and this specimen is the true Bess Bockstoce. A lovely soft pink double that has good stemstrength. I use it often as my pink cut flower choice because of it's truly elegant soft blossom.  It may need staking in some locations. Here in the north, it has received a hard frost when about a foot tall that made the stems bend completely over, yet, as the day warmed this peony came back and still the blossoms opened beautifully. A peony worth having. $30.00

There isno denying that Saunders has created some wonderful peonies and this is a beauty. When Cytheria comes into blossom in the field it always makes me catch my breath with wonder at it's perfect form and bright rose colour. The semi-double blossoms are held erect on on strong stems that do not require staking. The large cup shaped flowers are stunning in the garden or as a long lasting cut. A rather low growing peony at 60cm(24") it is great planted nearer to the front of a perennial border.  It has been awarded an APS gold Medal and certainly is worthy of it.  $30.00
