New to the collection, this Intersectional (or Itoh) peony has large, semi-double flowers of bright yellow. In the early years it is likely to be single in shape. The flowers are carried like all these wonderful peonies are, just above a mound of handsome, leathery, deeply divided, mid-green leaves.
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.
