GROWER NOTES:

This old favorite introduced in 1887, is still attracting attention with its multiple color blooms. Usually white striped pink but changing to white edged pink to solid red or even 1/2 red and 1/2 white. Often there are several different color blooms at the same time. A fun plant & dependable, compact grower.






LAURA WALKER

LOIS COKER

white with a yellow shadow. Small to medium, formal double with inward cupped and pointed petals. Mid season.

GROWER NOTES:

This flower will cause one to do a double take. It has a distinct yellow shadow that is hard to reproduce in a photo. The bloom itself looks very similar to White by the Gate. Very interesting. Our cuttings originated from members of the Coker family.




LUCY STEWART

White. Large to very large, loose peony form. Mid season bloom.

GROWER NOTES:

This is an impressive, very large white bloom. The plant is a good vigorous grower. Show winner.













MAGIC CITY

Fire red variegated white. Medium, peony form. Vigorous open, upright, growth. Mid season bloom.






MAGNOLIAEFLORA

Blush pink. Medium semi-double. Average compact growth. Mid season bloom.

GROWER NOTES:

This picture doesn't do the bloom justice. It is blush pink, somewhat lotus form and looks like it is made of porcelain. An old variety introduced in 1886 but still going strong. The plant is a compact grower and would do well in a courtyard situation where space is limited.







MAN SIZE

White. Miniature anemone form. Average open upright growth. Mid season bloom.

GROWER NOTES:

This miniature peony white is a consistent show winner in the miniature class.









MARGARET DAVIS

Sport of ‘Aspasia MacArthur’. White to cream white with a few rose red lines and dashed and edged bright vermillion Slow upright growth . Full peony form. Early to mid season bloom.

GROWER NOTES:

A wonderful introduction from "down under". The bloom is much more stable than the similar cultivar "Betty Sheffield Supreme". Leaves are nice dark green and the plant is a good grower.






MARGARET RATCLIFF

Blush pink. Medium semi-double. Vigorous open upright growth.  Mid season bloom.

GROWER NOTES:

I've seen Margaret Ratcliff blooming 3 days after a hard freeze has damaged most other blooms. Similar to Magnoliaeflora but semi double rather than lotus form. Vigorous grower.

MARVIN JERNIGAN VARIEGATED

Red and white. Very large semi-double to peony form. Vigorous dense spreading upright growth. Mid to late season bloom.

GROWER NOTES:

This bloom was hybridized by my friend, Marvin Jernigan. Often the blooms are just so-so and we wondered why Marvin named it for himself. But when you get a super bloom, then you know. I won a Best of Show with this bloom.






MARY AGNES PATIN

China rose. Large rose form double with some upright fimbriated petals and occasional cluster of petaloids. Vigorous open upright growth. Early bloom.

MISS BESSIE BEVILLE

Rose to phlox pink. Medium formal double. Average spreading growth.

GROWER NOTES:

Another great introduction from Dr Walter Homeyer. This plant is an early to mid season medium pink formal-when "gibbed" it will easily fall into the large category. Slow to bud up as a young plant but a heavy bud setter after the first couple of years.

Won 2010  "BEST IN SHOW" at Georgia Nat'l Fair & again at the Massee Lane Fall Show
