ITOH Peony Choice-Bart. Yw-Frst Arriv. Purp.-Scarlet Hvn R67202

This 1 pc. Intersectional ITOH Hybrid Peony is one of the plant worlds most prized possessions over the last 60 years. After 20,000 attempts in 1948, Toichi Itoh succeeded in producing the first successful cross between the Dutch garden peony, Tibetan tree peony and Chinese tree peony. It was many more decades later that they were available to the public, and even now with very limited availability. Ornamentally, they produce the best of all worlds with large 8 -10 inch flowers, with a fragrance sweet and enticing, flower count of 30-50 blossoms per plant, thick long-lived disease free foliage, vigorous growth from below the ground, ability to thrive in warm and cold winter areas and tolerance of heat and humidity during summers! Your choice of First Arrival, Bartzella or Scarlet Heaven.

During their dormant season, the ITOH or Intersectional hybrids retain only extremely short (1"-2") woody stems above ground level. Strong healthy plants form attractive, dense, neat rounded bushes which are shorter in stature than most tree peonies. Flowers are displayed above the handsome foliage that remains greener longer than their herbaceous parents. Intersectional hybrids are somewhat hardier than tree peonies and more tolerant of heat and humidity which extends their ornamental potential in both the north and south. Country of Origin: USA
