1:00 pm: Peony Culture Seminar: "The Woody Peonies"
with Nate Bremer, owner of Solaris Farms of Reedsville, Wisconsin
Nate will discuss his experiences growing and hybridizing lutea hybrids, suffruticosa and rockii woody peonies, with special
attention to our northern tier climate (upper mid-west). Through the use of a wide range of images attendees will see many
new cultivars and future possibilities being grown at Solaris Farms. Insights on hybridizing goals and techniques will be
shared, as well as, cultural information specific to each group. The extensive range of flower color, form and plant habit of
the 'Woodies' is surprising and will be a welcome sight for winter weary gardeners.
