Pink Vanguard

SKU: 10-04-2020

Seidl/Hollingsworth, 2005


Good genes! Introduced by US nurseryman Don Hollingsworth, a seedling from Bill Seidl with Saunders parentage. The skill and eyes of three great peony men went into the creation of this beauty and it shows. Well grown mature plants will have more side buds and fuller flowers than young plants. Another favourite of mine, I am always drawn to the light early pinks.

  • Our Guarantee

    Our promise is to provide you with healthily grown root divisions, with 3-5 eyes, and true to name. We take great care in packaging your roots so they arrive in perfect planting condition. If for any reason, during shipping, your package is not to your satisfaction, please send a photo within 48 hours, and we will either replace your order or refund you. 

    Since planting conditions, and other variables are outside of our control, we cannot guarentee roots once they have been planted. 

  • 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.
