Paeonia ‘Yellow Doodle Dandy’

Itoh Hybrid Peony

USDA Zone: 3-9

Plant number: 1.900.720

Itoh Peonies are rare and unusual hybrids between Garden Peonies and Tree Peonies. There are several varieties, all highly sought after by collectors, yet easy to grow and very hardy. This selection forms an upright bush of lush green leaves. The large double flowers are packed full with soft butter-yellow petals and have a lovely fragrance. One of the best yellow Peonies available. Peonies seldom need to be divided or moved, but if necessary it should be carried out only in the fall. Flowering is always best in a sunny location. Clean up the dead leaves in the fall to help prevent disease problems. Plants usually die to the ground, or to very low woody stems for the winter. Flowers on cut stems have a short life which makes them less suitable in arrangements. A better alternative for indoor display, cut about an inch below a bloom and float in a rose bowl.
