Our Master Gardeners Suggest Pairing With:
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 Prairie Charm:

    Just got this peony and it looks healthy and vibrant. Certainly not dead like the previous person who commented. I soaked it in wet soil over night and am getting ready to plant it in a nice sunny location where it will have room to get nice and large and enjoy sun and partial shade. I have many peonies and a tree peony (that has never done a thing in many years) and I'm sure this one will thrive. Don't let one bad review turn you away from doing business with American Meadows. They will replace any plant that doesn't live. They are a wonderful business and stand by their products. I buy their seeds and they are top of the line.
