Several years ago, I bought a bundle of 20+ peony seedlings roots from a Mr. Bill S. on Ebay. Most have grown and bloomed this spring. Just want to share some pics of them from the 20+ roots that I got from him. THey are mostly singles of whites and pinks. Listed here in the order of appeal to me anyway. Smiling

They're all pretty, I like that 1st one best as well, Karen! The pink edges make it stand out from the rest.

Those are beautiful!
I like single peonies.
I expect that these were random crosses, perhaps of NOIDS.
And yet they gave a good variety of interesting plants.

Karen, they are all very beautiful peonies. Just as Liz mentioned, I like the first one the most. You were very fortunate to acquire these seedlings, enjoy!

Thanks everybody. I really appreciate your opinions. I will keep an eye on the first one to see what will develop from it in a few years. It would be interesting to see if the pink speckling, veining, and edging will continue to show in subsequent flowers.

So you got blooming plants from seeds after 'several' years. Please define 'several' for those of us with a short timeline. Rolling on the floor laughing

Mary, I got these as small roots of two years seedlings. I have not grown any peony from seeds. I planted seeds out in my garden but none of them have germinated yet. At the rate that I am going, it will take much longer than "several" years to see a flower from the seeds that I did sow. Hilarious! Hilarious!

Do you think that Bill S was Bill Siedel?
Keep in mind that peony blooms take a while to show their true form.
This is great fun.

The blooms don't remind me of his work, but anything is possible. If it came from Manitowoc WI, it would have been him.
