Duchesse de Lorraine Itoh Peony

Description
The Itoh is the dream peony—a coveted hybrid from herbaceous and tree peonies that's much harder to obtain. We've been building up our selection of these extraordinary hybrids, and Duchesse de Lorraine is a particularly exciting find. This is a breakthrough Itoh—no other yellow variety has such full, petal-packed double blooms. They appear on strong stems, and produce a delightful fragrance. Once Duchesse de Lorraine matures, it'll provide tons of blooms for both the garden and cut flower displays. The foliage will remain a lush green backdrop for your perennial garden bed through the season, and the plant itself will last decades in the right spot. It is excellent in containers, borders and mass plantings. The blooms attract butterflies and are deer resistant. This très jolie variety is named for the Lorraine region in France.
