What is an Itoh Hybrid Peony?

Itoh

Hybrid Peonies often also referred to as Intersectional Peonies are a cross between herbaceous peonies and tree peonies. Hybridized in 1948 by Japanese horticulturalist Dr. Toichi Itoh. Itoh hybrids share characteristics from both types of peonies, strong sturdy stems from the tree peonies, and lush green lobed foliage from the herbaceous peonies.

Planting Advice

  • Performs best in full sun to partial shade
  • Fertilize in spring or early summer with fertilizer that contains low levels of nitrogen such as Dr. Earth Spectacular Bulb Food
  • Peonies may take several seasons to bloom, but these long lasting perennial classics are worth the wait
  • Fast growing to 2.5'-3'
  • Peonies are sensitive to planting depth, plant with crown slightly below the soil level
  • Peonies do not favor being transplanted, choose a location it can stay in for a long time.
