Plant Type: Peonies

Large 5-7″, bright canary yellow, fragrant, single to semi-double blossoms are produced on strong, long stems. In the center of each yellow blossom is a group of red-tipped carpels, showy yellow stamens, and red flares. Itoh Peony ‘Sequestered Sunshine’ has a bushy habit that does not require staking, flowers are upright even after a heavy rain. Additional blooms are produced on side shoots to provide a longer bloom time. The long stems make this a nice choice for cut flowers.

Itoh Peonies, also known as Intersectional Hybrids, are a cross between herbaceous Peonies and woody Tree Peonies. They have remarkable blooms on herbaceous plants (tops die back in late fall). Itoh Peonies have a compact, rounded form and grow 2-3′ tall. Deer resistant.
