Itoh intersectional peonies are a hybrid cross between a bush peony and a tree peony. They are often referred to as Itoh peonies, after the first successful breeder of these magnificent peonies, Mr. Toichi Itoh.
They are perennial, bush peonies in their growth habitat and display foliage and flowers reminiscent of their tree peony parent. They produce loads of flowers at maturity. Most intersectional peonies have exceptionally pleasant fragrance and are quite stately in any garden. They are rather disease resistant.
Itoh intersectional peonies never need staking. Plant bare root peonies in the fall.
