HISTORY
Lore In 2012, the Hoard Historical Museum of Fort Atkinson in Jefferson County, Wisconsin dedicated the Roger F. and Sandra L. Anderson Peony Garden in honor of Roger's extensive work in peony hybridization. The garden contains a sizable number of Roger's peony cultivars (along with other plants donated by the Andersons) and purportedly holds the honor of featuring North America's largest public intersectional peony collection, as of 2012. Perhaps one of Roger's most recognized cultivars is 'Bartzella', with a remarkable and essentially perfect yellow bloom with a classic spicy fragrance.
