    Kelway, 1925




    In 1925, King George V was king in England, and married to Mary of Teck. This is whom I would assume this peony is named after. 

    Japanese style, with bright yellow stamens in contrast to its rich pink petals. This peony is unregistered with the American Peony Association, but can be found listed in Jame Kelway's book, Garden Paeonies. 


    Height: 60-90 cm

    Fragrance: Faint

    Sidebuds: 1-2 Per stem

    Staking: Depends on location

    Bloom Date: week 5

    • A Note on Observations

      Observations of height, side buds, and staking are from Hudson, Quebec (zone 5a) grown in full sun, in a clay based soil. In different environments plants will perform slightly different. Instead of 1 to 2 side buds per stem, you may have none. If growing in slightly shadier environment, your peony may require staking. The observations are meant as a general guide, in how your peony should perform in optimal planting. In the case of fragrance, these are observations based on personal sniff tests in the field, we must bear in mind our olfactory senses are all different.
