Itoh Peonies are rare and unusual hybrids between Garden Peonies and Tree Peonies. There are several varieties, all highly sought after by collectors, yet easy to grow and very hardy. They form a midsized bush of lush green leaves. The selection, inspired by an Abenaquis Native American legend, offers a new colour for the Itoh with large, double, apricot blooms appearing late spring. Peonies seldom need to be divided or moved, but if necessary it should be carried out only in the fall. Flowering is always best in a sunny location. Clean up the dead leaves in the fall to help prevent disease problems. Plants usually die to the ground, or to very low woody stems for the winter. Much hardier than generally assumed. Flowers on cut stems have a short life which makes them less suitable in arrangements. A better alternative for indoor display, cut about an inch below a bloom and float in a rose bowl.
