Quick Overview:

Semi-double to double flowers are apricot and cream with scarlet flares toward the heart. At the opening, the lightly fragrant flower has the shape of a rose. The 6–8″ blooms are held well above the gorgeous foliage. Side buds open later than the main flowers on the stalk, so the plant remains in bloom for an extended time.

Itoh peonies are a hybrid cross between tree peony (P. lemoinei) and garden peony (P. lactiflora). This cross was first achieved by Toihi Itoh in 1948. Itoh peonies combine the large and showy flowers of tree peonies with the herbaceous stems and growing habits of garden peonies. Deep green foliage is divided into lance-shaped segments. Foliage remains attractive throughout the growing season. Plants die back to the ground after fall frost.

Description

Easily grown in rich, fertile, medium moisture, well-drained soils in full sun to part shade. Add compost as needed before planting. Remove spent flowers after bloom. Cut foliage to the ground and remove from the garden in fall after frost. Plants are long-lived, but do not need to be divided and can be left undisturbed for years.
