Named for Toichi Itoh, the first hybridizer to successfully cross a tree Peony with an herbaceous Peony in the 1940’s, for huge, beautiful fragrant blooms and lush green foliage. A cross between a traditional garden Peony and a woody tree peony it takes the best attributes of both plants. These peonies are known as intersectional hybrids. They tend to resemble tree Peonies with a vigorous growth habit and large double flowers with disease-resistant lacy, dark green foliage. After the flowering cycle, gardeners will enjoy the handsome bush for the remainder of the season. We all hope to get better with age like a fine wine….this is a plant that does just that!
