There are very few rules in gardening, but perhaps the most important one is to work within your zone. Choosing plants that grow and thrive in your particular climate is the very first step toward having a beautiful garden. Learn more >

Exceptionally large blooms with a light, pleasant fragrance held on strong stems above a compact mound of dark green, trouble-free foliage that lasts well into autumn. Masses of yellow petals have a nearly translucent quality, perfectly forming a formal double flower. Hybridized by Don Smith, a leading Itoh Peony breeder. An herbaceous perennial.

Provide enriched, slightly acidic, well-drained, moist soil. Plant with crown slightly below soil level. Water deeply, regularly in first growing season to establish an extensive root system; reduce frequency once established. Apply an annual side dressing of organic compost. Remove spent blooms. Prune back foliage in the fall.


First hybridized by Toichi Itoh in 1948, The Itoh Peonies are a cross between woody tree peonies and herbaceous peonies. These exceptional intersectional hybrid varieties 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.

Very Pretty Peony
by Flowerchild, May 6, 2017

The rating I am giving this plant is only interim. I think it will take a while to accurately gauge how well it does in comparison with my other Itohs. It is currently in flower in its pot and has beautiful blooms. They are like the photographs. The color is a butter yellow, not quite as dark or intense as Bartzella. It can leave you drooling for more. My big question is why is something this beautiful not more widely available? A group or row of these would be stunning.
