Peony Itoh Pastel Splendour
$39.00 $0.00 ( / )

Peonies explode into bloom for a week or two in early Summer, and then serve as a full bushy green accent plant in the garden. While easy to grow, they do require patience, sometimes taking two or even three years to bloom. They grow stronger and more prolific with every passing year, and live up to 100 years.

Description

The Itoh Pastel Slendour Peony is an absolute stunner, with ivory petals fringed with pastel pink, marked at their base with a brush of burgundy, and offset by a sculptural yellow ball in the center. Big statement-making blooms reach 6" in diameter. Love.

The petals of Peony flowers are edible, and make a lovely garnish for sweets and drinks.

How to Plant

Soak your Peony root in room temperature water for about 2-4 hours to re-hydrate it before planting. Now - this is important - you have to plant it at the correct depth or it will not flower. The eyes should be covered by ½” - 2” of soil. Now give your plant a good wish, a few solid pats to compress the soil around it, and a long drink of water.

Where to Plant

Find a place with good well-draining soil that gets a decent amount of sun, some afternoon shade, and protection from the wind. Space plants about 24" apart.

When to Plant

Bareroot peonies can be planted in spring or fall. The plants are not frost tender, so they can be planted 2 to 3 weeks before your frost free date in the spring or after your first frost in the fall. Plant within a day or two of receiving your root.

When to Expect Blooms

For a couple of glorious weeks in the early summer. (Although it can take a year or two to get reliable blooms). Among Peonies, this is an early blooming variety.

Care Instructions

Water regularly until they get established, and then give them extra water when they are setting buds. And ask us any questions along the way.

Extra Credit

If you have cold winters, mulch the roots in the winter. If you have hot summers, give it some afternoon shade. This variety does not require staking for the blooms.
