LoreFirst hybridized by Toichi Itoh in 1948, The Itoh peonies were a cross between woody tree peonies and herbaceous peonies. These exceptional intersectional hybrids offer the best of both parents: enormous flowers and foliage like that of a tree peony, with a prolific blooming habit, vigorous growth and stronger stems that hold up the large blooms without staking. Foliage mounds vigorously during the growing season, then stems die back in the fall and should be cut back just as with the herbaceous peonies.
Average Size at MaturityQuickly reaches 2½ to 3 ft. tall and wide.

Water deeply, regularly in first growing season to establish an extensive root system; reduce frequency once established. Apply an annual side dressing of organic compost. Remove spent blooms. Prune back foliage in the fall.
