‘Dawn Glow’ is one of a number of F3 ‘s of ‘Silver Dawn’ distributed to breeders by Silvia Saunders; it was known as Pehrsons’ Silver Dawn until it was named and registered by Don Hollingsworth.
I enjoy the patterning on this delicate flower. The plant is quite spreading but I’ve had better results with letting it spread naturally than by trying to contain it with a typical peony support hoop which it quickly outgrows.
