One of the original Intersectional peonies, raised by Professor Itoh in Japan. Sadly he did not see the result of his labours. This produce very big, semi-double to double, frilly rich lemon flowers. A short plant, the flowers face outwards and are carried on short stems just above 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.
