Paeonia 'Tethys'

type: [tree peony] – [lutea hybrid]



(Bremer 2017)

Tethys. Bremer. 2017. Advanced generation lutea hybrid. (Brassy Lady x Sedona). Tethys is a semi-double to double medium sized old rose colored flower. Flowers can be brighter pink coloration in years with better precipitation and cooler temperatures. The outer petals are notched and ruffled. When flowers are double (produced on strong terminals) the interior petals are smaller, ruffled and turn in many directions. The petals have many small reticulations of deeper coloration, creating an multicolor affect. Medium pink stigmas, red filaments, maroon flares and red sheath. Typically 5 carpels. Leaves are broad, dark green. pointed (rough sawtooth) and petioles are red . I would like stems to be a bit harder, but plants easily re-grow from basal shoots to bloom consistently year in and out. The real draw, for me, is the very sturdy stems that carry flowers in an upward fashion-unusual for a double lutea hybrid. Plants have excellent pollen and seed fertility is good on semi-double flowers. Named for the spherical moon of Saturn that is pitted and cratered, or the Titaness of Greek Mythology. An easy to grow plant that is proving to be outstanding.
