2022 Spring Hill Nursery Sells 2 New Intersectionals - Peony 'Belle Touslaine' & Peony 'Symphone Pourpre'

When I was working on my 2022 Intersectional Peony Catalog Price Comparison List this week, I couldn't help but notice all of the new intersectional peony varieties on this list. I was curious to see if Spring Hill might be offering any of the new intersectional peony hybrids again this year. I was happily surprised to see they are offering for sale 2 new intersectional peonies I had never seen offered before - Intersectional Peony 'Belle Touslaine' & Intersectional Peony 'Symphone Pourpre'.


Spring Hill Nursery Sells 2 New Intersectional Peonies
Peony 'Belle Touslaine' & Peony 'Symphone Pourpre'

Intersectional Peony 'Belle Touslaine' is on the 2022 Intersectional Peony Catalog Price Comparison List being sold by Peony Shop Holland, and Peony 'Symphone Pourpre' is not even on the list. I already had my eye on Peony 'Belle Touslaine' being offered in Peony Shop Holland's 2022 catalog for €55.00 (about $62.74 USD today). Spring Hill Nursery is offering this Intersectional Peony 'Belle Touslaine' variety for $79.99. They do however have a 10% off and free shipping sale going on, with coupon code 0477306. So with the lower price of $71.99 + free shipping, this seemed like a comparable price to Peony Shop Holland (when you add international shipping).

Plus with the opportunity to purchase Intersectional Peony 'Symphone Pourpre' as well, I just couldn't resist. 'Symphone Pourpre' translates from French to 'Purple Symphony' (and purple is my favorite color!). It looks like both of these varieties, Intersectional Peony 'Belle Touslaine' & Intersectional Peony 'Symphone Pourpre', were created by French hybridizer Theirry Rat. I am grateful to see some new international intersectional peony varieties being introduced to the US.

Peony 'Symphone Pourpre' is described as:
"From our French breeder, Symphonie Pourpre is ‘Purple Symphony’, best appreciated, much like a full orchestra, as a whole plant exploding with notes of fuchsia purple. This is one of the most floriferous Itoh we have come across; the bush is covered in semi-double fuchsia flowers lightly edged with a creamy pink picotee."


Spring Hill Nursery Intersectional Offerings

Also if you search Spring Hill's site for the word "itoh" (another name for intersectional), you will find that they are actually offering several intersectional peony varieties. Please keep in mind however, that the intersectional peonies they are offering are likely cloned varieties and usually only have 1 stem. These will take much longer to get established than most roots sold from traditional peony farms. This year they are offering Intersectional Peonies 'Oochigeas', (which I purchased in 2019 Spring Hill Nursery Peony Order Arrives) 'Bartzella', 'Duchesse de Lorraine' (which I purchased in 2020 Intersectional Peony 'Duchesse de Lorraine' Arrives from Spring Hill Nursery), 'Symphonie Pourpre', 'Belle Toulousaine', 'New Millenium' and 'Joanna Marlene' (not shown). If you are able to plant these in a nice home and are able to wait a bit longer for them to get established, this might be a good chance to get some expensive or hard to find varieities for a reasonable price!

It's been a little over 2 years since I published my last Intersectional Peony Catalog Price Comparison List! I hope this list aids you in your 2022 intersectional peony purchasing selections!

2021 Peony 'First Arrival' Southern Peony Best Performer - Week 4


Peony 'First Arrival'
Southern Peony Best Performer


Peony 'First Arrival'
Southern Peony Best Performer

Intersectional Peony 'First Arrival' was supposedly the first ever intersectional peony that bloomed for Roger Anderson from his intersectional peony breeding attempts. It sure is a beauty, and I don't think I've seen another intersectional peony on the market with a color quite like this one. It has a very nice pink color with a bit of a lavender tint. Intersectional Peony 'First Arrival' was hybridized by Roger Anderson and registered with the APS in 1986.

This intersectional peony will fill up the bush with buds, which bloom over a few days giving a fresh set of blooms, while the old blooms fade cleanly from the bush all on their own. This Intersectional Peony 'First Arrival' grows well here in the South. My plant took a few years to settle in, but it really seems to be taking off now. The bush gets larger and has more blooms on it each year! The blooms on this plant are quite variable in number of petals and form, but most of them have a pleasing symmetrical shape with rounded petals. The very center of these blooms have small dark pink/purple flares, giving the blooms a delightful inner glow of color!

2020 Giant Bloom on Intersectional Peony 'Gordon E. Simonson'


Intersectional Peony 'Gordon E. Simonson'

WOW! That's all I can really say about this Giant Bloom on my Intersectional Peony 'Gordon E. Simonson'. Of all the intersectional peonies I grow, the flowers on this one are definitely the largest. This is actually the first year this intersectional peony has bloomed for me. I first planted it in 2017, and it took until now to grow it to blooming size. The very first flower to open on this plant is super huge!! The petals on this flower just continued to grow and expand as it was open.


Intersectional Peony 'Gordon E. Simonson'

The color has faded some since it first opened, but for the most part, it has held the color pretty well, and is still a very nice shade. The substance on these petals is unbelievable! They are thick and really hold up well to the sun. This plant had 4 blooms on it for me this year, the first year that it has ever bloomed for me. What a giant stunner! I can't wait to see how this one does next year as well!! I wasn't sure if I would like this peony or not since it doesn't have a great name, but I am really impressed.

2020 Intersectional Peony Blooms Week 7 Very Late

Never Have I Ever...
1. Never Have I Ever had 4 weeks of intersectional peony cultivar blooms opening for the first time, until 2 weeks ago!
2. Never Have I Ever had 5 weeks of intersectional peony cultivar blooms opening for the first time, until last week!
3. Never Have I Ever had an intersectional peony open for the first time in Week 6, Late Bloom Season, until 2 weeks ago!
4. Never Have I Ever had an intersectional peony open for the first time in Week 7, Very Late Bloom Season, until just this past week!!

Wow!!! This has really been an exceptional year for the peony bloom season. While there are a few other blooms left on some cultivars that starting blooming earlier in the season like Intersectional Peony 'Bartzella', these two peonies 'Chief Black Hawk' and 'Berry Garcia' opened their first blooms this past week in Week 7. I just can't believe it. The weather really does make a difference in when during the year your peonies will bloom, how fast (or slow) all of buds on the plant will open, and how long the blooms will stay on the plant before falling off. If you'd like to see how this year stacks up to some of the previous years here at Southern Peony, take a look at our Southern Peony Bloom Dates page. It shows which years had flowers in which weeks for the past 10 years! This is pretty much the end of the intersectional bloom season. However there are still some herbaceous lactifloras that haven't opened yet. So I'm still looking forward to Week 8, Very Very Late!

2020 Transplanting an Intersectional Peony 'Bartzella' in Spring to Grandma's House


Transplanting an Intersectional Peony 'Bartzella'
in Spring to Grandma's House

Maybe I was encouraged by the mild spring we've been having. Or maybe I just couldn't bear to see Grandma's yellow peony not thrive and grow another year in a row. So I decided to dig her up one of my Intersectional Peony 'Bartzella' plants in spring and bring it to her. I know that spring is not the best time to transplant a peony, but sometimes you do things when you have the opportunity. Last weekend was one of those days!


Intersectional Peony 'Bartzella'
in My Peony Test Bed Before Digging

So... Here's what I did. I woke up early in the morning because it was actually going to be pretty hot that day. I wanted to dig the plant when it was very early so the plant had the optimum amount of moisture in it when I removed it from the ground. The later in the day you dig something, the more time it has had to sit in the sun and lose water to evaporation. Lucky for me, it had rained the day before quite a bit.


Intersectional Peony 'Bartzella'
Partially Dug

My first plan of action was to dig the plant on one side. I know that sounds a little weird, but I was trying to prevent the loss of and damage to as few roots of the peony as possible. First I moved the sign for it, then I started digging. I started digging far away from the peony to try to find the roots. Once I started to find the roots, I just kept digging underneath them, removing dirt and setting it aside.


Digging Underneath the Roots of
Intersectional Peony 'Bartzella'

This helped increase the visibility in the root zone. As you can see I kind of created a hole or space underneath the plant as I removed more and more soil. I did end up losing 2 large storage roots on the side I was digging. It seems kind of unavoidable to prevent any damage, but I did my best. That's one reason why I decided to only dig from one side. I knew the more sides I dug on, the more roots I'd lose. Eventually I had enough space under the peony that I could grab it from the underneath the crown and base of the roots. Then I just started jiggling it and moving it here and there, using my shovel to loosen underneath a bit if needed, pull, jiggle, pull, jiggle, until it finally came out!


Intersectional Peony 'Bartzella' Finally Dug Out

As you can see, I was thinking was I going to put the peony into this 2 or 3 gallon pot to transport it to my Grandma's house. However you can see that was a laughable idea. If I had even tried to put this peony into that pot, I would have broken off every root I just so carefully extracted and tried to save. So the pot stayed home, and the intersectional peony 'Bartzella' and its giant roots when into a black plastic trash bag instead! The roots on this peony were probably 3 feet across or more!


Intersectional Peony 'Bartzella'
Ready for Transporting in a Black Plastic Trash Bag

When I arrived at Grandma's house I walked around looking for a good spot to plant it. When I had a couple of good ideas, I took Grandma around, told her my ideas for possible spots for it, and let her choose one of those spots. She selected this spot right behind some yellow irises, yellow daylilies, and yellow daffodils. I think it was my favorite spot too. Once the spot was selected I started digging. And digging. And digging.


Transplanting an Intersectional Peony 'Bartzella'
in Spring to Grandma's House

Grandma's house like many properties here has it's share of red mud aka red clay. I was prepared, though, and brought a bag of top soil to mix into the planting hole. I put mixed a half a bag into the planting hole (saving some for other plants in case we needed it). However it looked like I could have put in a whole bag. I also mixed in a cup of 10-10-10 slow release fertilizer pellets that my Grandma had at her house. The hole I dug for this peony was huge. I wanted to make sure I had enough room for those giant 3 foot roots!


Intersectional Peony 'Bartzella'

Once I had everything dug up and mixed in, I started removing soil from the hole. Then I placed the plant in the planting hole. I actually planted this Intersectional Peony 'Bartzella' about half an inch to an inch deeper into the soil at Grandma's house than it was growing at my house. I wanted to give the plant some stability since its roots (the plants normal stabilizers) had just been ripped from the ground placed in different, much looser, freshly dug soil. Also sometimes the soil washes at Grandma's house, and she may not mulch her plants as often as I do.


Intersectional Peony 'Bartzella'

Once the plant was in place, I started the amended and fertilized soil with the shovel until it was mostly refilled. When all of the roots were covered, next I made sure that the plant was balanced and standing up correctly, adding and firming soil in any spots needed to help its balance and stability. I also made sure to leave the plant slightly lower than it's surrounding soil and create a small soil mound around the planting hole to help hold and keep water when watering the plant.


Intersectional Peony 'Bartzella'

After planting it, I watered the peony with two 2 gallon buckets of water. Even though it had rained more than an inch the day before, you alway needs to water in your newly planted plants to help settle the soil, remove any air pockets, and help re-hydrate the roots. This peony looked pretty good after it was planted. However it definitely did sulk later that date in the hot sun. My Grandma put some more water on it again in the afternoon. I told her to keep her eye on it and take care of it this summer making sure it has plenty of water. She said it looked better and less wilted the next day. Thank goodness we've been having some more mild spring temperatures this week. I really do hope this Intersectional Peony 'Batzella' will grow and thrive at my Grandma's house! I'll have to keep you posted on how it does. :-)

2020 More Intersectional Peony Seedling Babies Pop Up!


More Intersectional Peony Seedlings Pop Up - 4/26

They're alive! They're alive!! Well, it took quite a while from when the first intersectional peony seedling popped up on March 26th, 2020 Intersectional Peony Seedling Pops Up!, for another one of them to pop up. It was literally a month later when the 2nd two intersectional peony seedlings popped up. It makes you think that the first one of these must be an early bloomer, while the other two are later bloomers. Who knows if that's true, but it would be interesting to find out. I'm just glad some of the first seedling's siblings started to show up. I was definitely getting worried about them. It seems like that happens every year, though. So this year I decided to mark each intersectional peony seedling with a tiny bamboo plant stake. So next year when I'm waiting for them to grow, I'll know exactly where they're supposed to be showing up! :-)

2020 Tulip World Intersectional Peony 'Scrumdidleyumptious' Actually Peony 'Coral Charm'


Tulip World Intersectional Peony 'Scrumdidleyumptious'
Actually Peony 'Coral Charm'

Well, I suppose if you're going to get an incorrect peony for $12.95, Peony 'Coral Charm' is a great peony to get. I must say it is definitely disappointing to get the wrong peony from 2018 Tulip World Offers Intersectional Peony 'Scrumdidleyumptious' for $12.95!, but I think part of the value I help bring to all of you is uncovering the truth from the many and varied places you can buy a peony. In this case the peony was definitely not true to name/cultivar. It was not even true to type. It was supposed to be an Intersectional Peony, but a herbaceous peony came instead. The variety was supposed to be 'Scrumdidleyumptious' peony, but a 'Coral Charm' peony came instead.


Tulip World Intersectional Peony 'Scrumdidleyumptious'
Actually Peony 'Coral Charm' - 4/18

Peony 'Coral Charm' is actually a great peony to grow in a Southern climate. It is actually a Southern Peony Best Performer. This peony was first recognized in 2015 Peony 'Coral Charm' Best Performer - Week 2. This peony is very vigorous here, will grow larger each year, and make a large enough plant that you will be able to divide it to share with friends and family. I know it is never a great feeling to get the wrong peony, but I am still grateful for this beautiful Peony 'Coral Charm' that I recieved.

2020 Intersectional Peony Blooms Week 6 Late

When there are mostly yellow intersectional peonies blooming in the intersectioanl peony bed, you know the season is drawing near the end. It is definitely bittersweet, but I am thankful for all of the gorgeous peony blooms I've had in my garden so far this year. Especially since this is actually the first year ever that I've had any intersectional peony bloom in Week 6 (Late). That is just awesome! This spring has been so slow to warm up, the peony bloom season has lasted longer. While intersectionals are my favorite type of peony, there are still several herbaceous peonies that have yet to bloom. There are actually a couple more intersectional peonies that have not bloomed yet in Week 6. So look out next week for some more Southern Peony record-setting intersectional peony blooms, in Week 7 (Very Late)! :-o
