MOONRISE (Saunders, 1949) - Single - Creamy yellow. Hybrid. Albiflora x lobata, F2. List in Bulletin 129. Miss Saunders letter 1955.

Moonrise (1949) One of the rare F2's of the race; an exquisite ivory single of great vigor, substance and beauty, It blooms with the parent group. [Albiflora x lobata - the great race of „lobata hybrids“ This group contains many beautiful pink and red tones so long desired in the Chinese peonies; salmon, coral, rose and deep cherry pinks, to clear bright crimsons, with no hint of purple and never a bad color in all the hundreds that have bloomed. I think this is the most brilliant and e effective strain of herbaceous hybrids yet produced. . Their season is generally M. They set hardly any seed, but their F2's may be interesting. About a dozen reds, and almost thirty pinks have been introduced, many of them so similar to one another that I have now tried to sort them roughly into color groups. The pinks especially, fade off as the flower ages , into pale peach shades, so that a mature plant will have flowers of many differing tones, but all harmonious [..] are single except when otherwise noted.Among the lobatas is an astonishing plant.
