Listen to learn what Itoh Peonies are, some quick growing facts, and THE most important planting tip on this quick DIY Garden Minute podcast.
What is an Itoh Peony?
Itoh peonies are a wonderful and gorgeous group of peonies that are actually a hybrid cross between the herbaceous shrub peony and the woody-stemmed tree peony.
Learn a lot more about Itoh peonies and other peonies at the American Peony Society website.
They love full to part sun, well-draining soil, and bloom starting in June into the summer months. Wow!
Their flowers are "dinner plate" size and come in a variety of colors.

THE Most Important Planting Tip
When adding bareroot Itoh peonies to your garden, you want to place them 1-2 inches below your soil surface, as any deeper and they may still grow, but not flower.
So, make sure those swelling growing buds you see around your bareroot peony are below the soil surface no deeper than 1-2 inches. Kapeesh!
