Two recent hybrids of P. lutea and P. moutan offer much of interest and beauty, though not as early flowering as either parent...... P. La Lorraine, sent out in 1912, also by Lemoine, has a very full globular bloom, about six inches across, regular in outline and of a buff tone passing to golden yellow. It gained high honours in France and was awarded the First Class Certificate — a recognition of great merit—by the English Royal Horticultural Society in 1912. It was one of the most startling novelties introduced into England in that year. This variety is not offered as yet in this country.

Paeony La Lorraine was first exhibited at the Ghent International Exhibition in April, 1913, and the unusual colouring of the flower at once attracted notice. The variety is a distinct break in Tree Paeonies, for although these flowers exhibit many and various tints, there was none previous to La Lorraine that could be termed yellow. It is a hybrid between the herbaceous species Paeonia lutea (see Gard. Chron., July 19, 1908...Illust.) and the tree Peony P. Moutan.
