Like many Intersectional (or Itoh) peonies the flowers are often different in colour in their youth. Starting cream, the smooth petalled semi-double flowers are tinted with raspberry-red. As they age the whole flower is becomes soft apricot. The flower opens wide revealing a centre of curling stamens that are sterile.
Peonies will grow in most soils as long as they are not wet, including clay soils. They require a sunny or partially shaded site. Herbaceous peonies need to be planted with the eye (the dormant pink buds) no more than 2.5cm below the surface of the soil. Do not mix manure in the soil before planting as this may rot the eyes.
