2015 Intersectional Peony Seeds 'Lafayette Escadrille'

Seed and Seed Pod of Peony 'Lafayette Escadrille'

Of all the seeds I collected this year, I think the ones I am most excited about are from Peony 'Lafayette Escadrille'. Yes, that's right 'Lafayette Escadrille', an intersectional peony. I have only ever gotten one seed from an intersectional peony before, and that was from Peony 'White Emperor' in 2014. That one seed did not sprout. This time instead of just one seed, I got 9 seeds. However I am not sure if they are viable, but I am going to plant them anyway and hope for the best. Intersectional peonies do not usually set seed and are mostly infertile. So I'd love to be able to get one of their seeds to actually grow and get an intersectional seedling. I'll let you know if anything comes up!

  1. Wonderful! We are excited to have found seed in Watermelon Wine and Scarlet Heaven this year - your seed looks promising. The anticipation of perhaps sprouting an Itoh seedling is thrilling.

    1. Brooks Gardens,

      That is awesome! You'll have to let me know if any of your seeds sprout. I can't wait to hear all about it!
