Paeonia suffruticosa 'Age of Gold'

The cool colored tree peonies are done, but the yellows and warm mixes are just starting to flower. This lovely classic yellow, another Saunder's hybrid is flowering at the Pagoda. (you can see parts of red columns in the background)

The plant was a donation, in 1967, by the "Garden Club of Twenty". I searched superficially for this Maryland club and determined that it both does exist at present, and was around as early as 1921. My progress slowed considerably and I'll do more research later.
