With the looks of something straight out of a fairytale! This picturesque semi-double to double Itoh Peony is a treat for the eyes and for a month long span in mid spring boasts bold 6" apricot flowers with stunning raspberry-magenta streaks coursing through the petals which makes it look like a delicious lollipop! With varying shades of apricot to light pink as they mature they also develop an even more prominent streaking as the season progresses! Itoh Peonies are a treasure of hybridization, showing off the attractive plant habit of herbaceous peonies and the massive, gorgeous flowers of tree peonies, with up to 50 blooms on a mature bush! Itoh Peonies have strong sturdy stems that require no staking, and the leaves start out a scarlet red that mature to lush green and keep fresh right until frost! A rare find that is not cheap, but worth it's weight in gold, lasting decades in the garden for many years of guaranteed pleasure season after season.
