WAUCEDAH PRINCESS A Paeonia rockii hybrid raised by D. Reath in 1988. Flowers: very pale pink, darker in the central petals, dark blotch at the base; fully double.

Waucedah Princess. Reath. 1988. Very double light lavender, mound type plant. Heavy flowers face outward and sometimes downward. Plants do not become tall. Foliage is finely cut. A profuse bloomer that will often have a couple of side buds per stem. Stem loss to winter cold is common, but plants quickly regrow from ground shoots to bloom the same year. Fertile both ways-seed is more challenging. F1 lutea hybrid.

Parentage unknown.
