Japan was the first nation to successfully propagate the Itoh peony named after its founder: Toichi Itoh (1948).
Although very suited to our prairie climate, they are relatively new to Canada. The Itoh peonies are also referred to as Intersectional Peonies. They are a cross between herbaceous and tree peonies.  Itohs feature unique shades of yellow along with sepia-toned pinks, purples, salmon, and coppery-orange.
Our OGHC Itoh peonies will be bed-fellows with the much swooned over coral and red-charm peonies, while also sharing bed space with one or two shy night bud-closing Japanese singles.
