Magical Mystery Tour Itoh Peony

Paeonia (Intersectional hybrid) x 'Magical Mystery Tour'

This vigorous and floriferous peony will delight and entertain: the mystery tour rolls out with large, semi-double to double flowers that open to a cream-pink blend, then over time fade into a creamy white bloom with a lavender pink picotee. A spectacular show! The sturdy stems require no staking and the blooms are ideal as a cut flower.
