Itoh Peonies

Keiko (Adored)

Yellow Doodle Dandy

Our newest additions to the garden. While taking Linda and Wayne to Shelbyville I passed Southbranch Nursery in Murfreesboro that was just begging me to stop. On the way back home I did and seen these beauties. On Monday Mom and I went back to Shelbyville to pick up Linda and stopped on the way to buy these beauties. The pictures don't do them justice, they are gorgeous.

The Itoh peonies are a cross between a herbaceous peony and a tree peony. This cross combined the best traits of both parents: great vigor, large distinctive flowers, strong stems and long lasting blooms. Monrovia is partnering with leading Itoh breeder Don Smith for these beauties.
