Bloom TimeLate Spring to Early Summer
Design IdeasItoh peonies are among the most coveted perennials of the border. Aside from the exquisite blooms on strong stems that remain upright even after a heavy rain, their lush, vigorous foliage holds through summer, making them outstanding in foundation planting and beds close to outdoor living spaces. They can also blend naturally into more casual settings creating focal points and bold color in season. A gorgeous plant for flower-filled lawn islands and in high profile front yard locations. Cut peonies are the epitome of romance. When cutting for arrangements, leave at least three leaves on the stem. For longest vase life, cut stems in the morning, choosing buds that have a marshmallow texture with the petal color just peeping through.
