 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. This selection is named for the Lorraine region of France, home of renowned breeder Victor Lemoine and is the first fully double, yellow Itoh with the added bonus of an enticing fragrance. The bomb-type bloom may have as many as 120 petals, far outnumbering even Bartzella. 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. 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.
