Description
Intersectional Peonies are hybrids between woody Tree Peonies and herbaceous Garden peonies. These hybrids are relatively new creations, with the first successful intersectional crosses being made in 1948. These hybrids are called “Itoh peonies” after Mr. Toichi Itoh, a Japanese hybridizer who created the first intersectional Peony. the result is a disease resistant plant with a longer blooming season, due to their ability to produce preliminary and secondary buds once the plant is established. Its lower compact habit and sturdier stems allows it to support up to 30 flowers per well-established plant.

Intersection, or “Itoh” Peonies are very easy to grow in full to part sun in well-drained soil. Make sure the crowns are planted 1 to 2 inches deep and no deeper. If peonies are planted too deep, they may not bloom.

    Comments about American Meadows Itoh Peony Cora Louise:

    My 'Cora Louise' Itoh Peony has taken a leading role in a border containing shrubs and perenniels. The flowers are held on strong stems that do not need staking. In the summer of 2014, I ordered four of this cultivar, received four plants, but only one turned out to be 'Cora Louise'. Three plants developed well, but the fourth did not. This spring, the plants bloomed for the first time: one was clearly 'Cora Louise', but two produced huge yellow flowers ('Bartzella'?) instead of the expected white with deep purple/maroon flares typical of 'Cora Louise'. At my request shortly after receiving the plants, American Meadows refunded the price for the one plant that failed to thrive. I did not request any action on the mislabled plants when they blommed for the first time in 2015 because the two mislabeled plants are just as lovely as 'Cora Louise'. However, I was disconcerted that only one of the four plants that I ordered turned out to be what I ordered.
