Intersectional Peonies

Royalty among garden plants.

Intersectional (Itoh) Peonies are modern hybrids between herbaceous and tree peony. This combines the best of both, freely produced and much larger flowers which are deliciously fragrant they are the product of decades of meticulous work by a small number of inspired breeders. These are long lived plants, easily more than 50 years with no susceptibility to normal pests and diseases, even left alone by Rabbits and Deer, established plants can have dozens of flowers in one season. Flower colour can be difficult to describe and one of the attractions of these plants is that the colour can vary as the bloom ages. The very first flowers of young plants may not always be typical until the plant is established. These Peonys grown in airpots can be planted at any time of the year, if irrigation is available in dry spells over the first summer but winter planting is the ideal.
The sumptuous flowers are proudly held above the foliage and last much longer than either of the parents, often a month or more. These flowers are excellent for cutting for a vase.
Pruning is simply a matter of cutting back the top growth in winter, by then the new buds which are next year’s flowering shoots will be visible also cutting back old flower shoots to the ground after flowering often induces a second flush of flowers.
All are compact seldom more than 2’6” high and so do not need support even when carrying the large flowers they are extremely hardy throughout the UK. In spring the new growth is beautifully tinted and in autumn the foliage colours red and orange truly a plant for all seasons. Try them as a collection in a border on their own, among compact shrubs, or other quality perennials. They like an open sunny site in ordinary soil some varieties are still scarce and this is reflected in the price. We have a few very large display plants in 20 litre airpots (between £50-£80) if you would like a quote for carriage please enquire by email. However are most are strong 4-5 year old plants with a developed root system uniquely grown in airpots these retain the fully developed roots including the fully developed feeder roots thus ensuring rapid establishment. Most would be expected to flower the same season. A little balanced feed in spring is useful.
