Follow a regular watering schedule during the first growing season to establish a deep, extensive root system. Once established, water deeply and less frequently. Prune foliage in fall. Performs best in slightly acidic soil.
First hybridized by Toichi Itoh in 1948, The Itoh Peonies are a cross between woody tree peonies (Paeonia suffruticosa or P. suffruticosa x P. lutea or P. delavayi), and herbaceous peonies (P. lactiflora). These exceptional intersectional hybrids offer the best of both parents: Enormous flowers and foliage like that of a tree peony, with a prolific blooming habit, vigorous growth and stronger stems that hold up the large blooms without staking. Featuring a lush, substantial form during the growing season, the stems die back in the fall and must be cut back just as with the herbaceous peonies.
