Intersectional Peony hybrids, also known as Itoh Peonies in honor of Toichi Itoh, the originator of these unique, long-lived, hybrid Peonies. They are the result of a cross made between herbaceous Peonies (perennial, tops die back in late fall) and Tree Peonies (woody shrubs). Itoh Peonies have the remarkable flowers and handsome foliage of Tree Peonies on herbaceous plants with tops that die back to approximately 1-2" above ground level. They form compact, 2-3' tall, rounded plants with abundant blooms held on strong stems. Like other types of Peonies, they are deer resistant.
Tree Peonies are woody stemmed shrubs that will grow to their mature size in 5 to 8 years. Blossoms will reach 5-7" wide, unless otherwise noted, and the plants will reach 3 1/2' to 5' tall and wide.
Recommended for USDA Zones 4-8.
