An absolute stunner! The Julia Rose Itoh Peony is a diverse late spring blooming perennial. Large 7" diameter blooms appear in May and June. Itoh hybrid peonies have strong sturdy stems that support the large blooms, therefore not requiring staking. Julia Rose will bloom in shades of pink, peach, with yellow and apricot tones in the petals and stamens of the blooms.
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.

Fantastic so far. 2 months on and with leaves. Very happy.
I was a lil leary at first because what I received," what looked like to me "a stick" to me, in the mail had to been a joke, but gave them the benefit of the doubt and planted it. I'll be dang it grew and so far it's just shy of 12 inches but no blooms this year and the foliage is a winter green with pink.
This fall, I purchased a ridiculous amount of bulbs in hopes for an amazing spring presentation. Every year, I only order from Holland Bulbs and it doesn’t disappoint. I also order for my mother’s yard as her Mother’s Day present. All the bulbs were healthy and nice.
Just a beautiful peony that changes colors as it ages. Fast shipping with a great price.
I pre-ordered these roots in summer and received the root in late October (zone 6). They arrived well packaged and labelled. One root was in poor condition and the customer service sent a replacement that is fresh with 4 eyes!
