These are the pictures I took when visiting Solaris Gardens. I can say I'll be paying a LOT of attention to their offerings after seeing it in person! Please feel free to add any pics of Solaris to the string, the more the merrier!

I didn't take a pic of the name of this one. I have a pic of a lady from the convention and her daughter standing beside this peony, it was even with their heads at around 5'5"!

Hi littlebin, I'll be more diligent about taking photos this spring, I promise! Mine just typically look rattier than most here--my foliage ALWAYS gets hail damaged so it's a bit embarrassing posting pics when there are so many GORGEOUS flower and plant pics posted to this forum...you'll almost always see more close-up bloom shots from me than full plant pics because of that. This pic of Pink Cameo demonstrates what I'm talking about...
Thumb of 2016-12-11/LizinElizabeth/1914c0
It will be interesting to see what blooms next spring. I know I had several first time blooms last spring that I missed, several of the Lins peonies and Summer Glow jump to mind...and I missed almost all of my Itohs.

Missing pretty much the entire mid season made me really appreciate the few that I did catch. Rose Heart did very well for me this year--the first time I've gotten a support out there before the snows so it stood up incredibly well this spring--can't even see the tomato cage! This one is around 7 years in this spot and has never been divided, it's a nice plant now but I can't imagine how big it'd be if it were in a better peony climate. At least it's protected by the house from most of the hail but not a sunny location for the same reason, it doesn't seem to care!
Thumb of 2016-12-11/LizinElizabeth/4f034a

One that caught my eye while going through my pics is Cactus Jack. I don't know how many "striped" doubles I have now, seems there are several, but Cactus Jack is the only one that's bloomed first year. It's not really double, just a full semi-double, but loved the flower.
Thumb of 2016-12-11/LizinElizabeth/ffd6ee

My Etched Salmon has been very slow to increase and is in one of the heavier hail hit gardens. The few blooms I do get are amazing to me, though! I edited one of them to get a close-up of the petals toward the middle, love it! Here are both original and zoomed...

I agree Their peonies are just super stunning! Their seedlings for both TP and HP are just out of this world. I would love to get a few of them particularly NB H86

There were so many that I wanted to dig up and bring home with me! He said several of these are being registered over the next couple of years, we just have to keep watching for them to get added to his selling stock!

Reminding all that it takes a bit to bulk up in order to have stock to sell. Crossing Fingers! It might be a few years and initial offerings may be high due to volume available.

Wow! Awesome photos, Liz! I am drooling over them, but it may be many years until we see them offered for sale.
But we can all dream.
