The Japanese nurseryman Toichi Itoh was the first to succeed in hybridizing tree peonies (Paeonia lemoinei) with herbaceous peonies (Paeonia lactiflora) in the 1960s. From this new hybrid group, also known as Itoh peonies, a vibrant palette of colors emerged.
We are pleased to offer a selection of these unique American hybrid peonies. Intersectional peonies possess many attributes which make them highly desirable landscape plants. The leaves and flower forms resemble those of tree peonies, while the growth habit is similar to that of herbaceous peonies. Flowers are held upright on top of the bush and never require any kind of support. In the fall, after the frost, intersectional peonies are cut back to ground level, and the plants come back larger each spring.
