General Information: Rare and unusual, ITOH Peony (pronounced Eh-Toe) are a cross between Tree Peony and Garden Peony. They are herbaceous plants but produce blooms which are similar to the Tree Peony. Enormous flowers are double or semi-double in a wide variety of truly remarkable colours. A mature plant can produce 50 plus blooms which will grace your garden for weeks in early to mid-summer. Not only is this a spectacular plant but it never needs staking. Unlike the common Garden Peony, ITOH plants have very strong, upright stems. ITOH Peony are easily grown in a sunny location and are not too fussy about soil conditions. They can be grown in sandy, clay or loamy soil. These beautiful ornamentals are deer and rabbit resistant and make a wonderful cut flower.
