Itoh or Intersectional Peonies
Hybridized by Dr. Itoh in 1940's Japan, these crosses of tree peony and herbaceous (garden peony) combine the best traits of both classes. Blooms resemble tree peonies in form and color, but have the substance and longer bloom time of the bush peony.
Fifty blooms are not uncommon on established plants and there can be six weeks of color as secondary buds open. Plants come in many rare colors such as yellow, peach and coral, as well as the usual peony colors of orchid, pink, red and blush white.
Plants like full sun to part shade, with rich soil and good drainage. Foliage stays nice until late fall when it can turn lovely fall colors. Container plants can be planted anytime of the year.
